Functions of class afb_service

All the functions of the class afb_daemon use the default api. This are internally aliased to the corresponding legacy function of class afb_api.

/**
 * Calls the 'verb' of the 'api' with the arguments 'args' and 'verb' in the name of the binding.
 * The result of the call is delivered to the 'callback' function with the 'callback_closure'.
 *
 * For convenience, the function calls 'json_object_put' for 'args'.
 * Thus, in the case where 'args' should remain available after
 * the function returns, the function 'json_object_get' shall be used.
 *
 * The 'callback' receives 3 arguments:
 *  1. 'closure' the user defined closure pointer 'callback_closure',
 *  2. 'status' a status being 0 on success or negative when an error occured,
 *  2. 'result' the resulting data as a JSON object.
 *
 * @param api      The api name of the method to call
 * @param verb     The verb name of the method to call
 * @param args     The arguments to pass to the method
 * @param callback The to call on completion
 * @param callback_closure The closure to pass to the callback
 *
 * @see also 'afb_req_subcall'
