afb_event_name

/**
 * Gets the name associated to 'event'.

afb_event_unref

/**
 * Decrease the count of references to 'event'.
 * Call this function when the evenid is no more used.

 *
 * @param event the event

Pushing functions

afb_event_broadcast

/**
 * Broadcasts widely an event of 'event' with the data 'object'.
 * 'object' can be NULL.
 *
 * For convenience, the function calls 'json_object_put' for 'object'.
 * Thus, in the case where 'object' should remain available after
 * the function returns, the function 'json_object_get' shall be used.
 *
 * @param event the event to broadcast
 * @param object the companion object to associate to the broadcasted event (can be NULL)
 *
 * @return the count of clients that received the event.
 */

			struct json_object *object);

afb_event_push

/**
 * Pushes an event of 'event' with the data 'object' to its observers.
 * 'object' can be NULL.
 *
 * For convenience, the function calls 'json_object_put' for 'object'.
 * Thus, in the case where 'object' should remain available after
 * the function returns, the function 'json_object_get' shall be used.
 *
 * @param event the event to push
 * @param object the companion object to associate to the pushed event (can be NULL)
 *
 * @return the count of clients that received the event.
