External Connection Configuration

name) statically in the program, Dad offers also the possibility to
read in external configuration files which contain this connection
parameters. In this case the function
dadDoConnect should be replaced by
the three functions of
Following this scheme a client does not have to know which server
serves which dataflow but it simply connects to the dataflow itself.
In later version of dad this method also offers a distributed serving
of data, i.e. a client connects automatically to this mirror of the
dataflow information which currently offers the best network connection
and is under a low load.
