    Question Architecture to eliminate "children and parent that is in a different thread"

    I need call QSslSocket into grpc method (https://www.grpc.io/docs/languages/cpp/):
    Qt Code:
    1. class GreeterServiceImpl final : public Greeter::Service {
    2. Status SayHello(ServerContext* context, const HelloRequest* request, HelloReply* reply) override {
    3. mySslClient.setHostName(/*...*/);
    4. // ...
    5. return Status::OK;
    6. }
    7.  
    8. MySslClient mySslClient;
    9. };
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    MySslClient looks like that:
    Qt Code:
    1. MySslClient::MySslClient(QObject *parent) :
    2. QObject(parent),
    3. mSocket(new QSslSocket(this))
    4. {
    5. QSslConfiguration config = mSocket->sslConfiguration();
    6. //...
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    As a result, I get an error
    Qt Code:
    1. QObject: Cannot create children for a parent that is in a different thread.
    2. (Parent is QSslSocket(0x55f14d7adf60), parent's thread is QThread(0x55f14d7ad700), current thread is QThread(0x7fc3fc3faf60)
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Can this problem be resolved?

    Instead of creating your QSslSocket instance in the MySslClient constructor, create it in the same thread where you create the MySslClient instance and pass the pointer in as an additional argument to the MySslClient constructor. Basically, any QObjects that have a parent-child relationship all must be created in the same thread. So any children of MySslClient have to be created in the same thread where the MySslClient instance (and its parent QObject) are created.

    Unfortunately, it didn’t work out. I get gRPC helloworld example https://github.com/plasticbox/grpc-w...helloworld/src

    Qt Code:
    1. class GreeterServiceImpl final : public Greeter::Service {
    2.  
    3. public:
    4.  
    5. // begin attempt 1
    6. QSslSocket* mSocket;
    7. void setSslSocket(QSslSocket *socket = nullptr) {
    8. mSocket = socket;
    9. }
    10. // end attemt 1
    11.  
    12. Status SayHello(ServerContext* context, const HelloRequest* request, HelloReply* reply) override {
    13.  
    14. // begin attemt 1
    15. QSslConfiguration config = mSocket->sslConfiguration();
    16. config.setPeerVerifyMode(QSslSocket::VerifyNone);
    17. config.setProtocol(QSsl::SecureProtocols);
    18. mSocket->setSslConfiguration(config);
    19. mSocket->connectToHostEncrypted("google.com", 8080);
    20. // end attemt 1
    21.  
    22. std::string prefix("Hello ");
    23. reply->set_message(prefix + request->name());
    24. return Status::OK;
    25. }
    26.  
    27.  
    28. };

    Qt Code:

    2. std::string server_address("0.0.0.0:50051");
    3. GreeterServiceImpl service;
    4.  
    5. // begin attemt 1
    6. QSslSocket* sok = new QSslSocket;
    7. service.setSslSocket(sok);
    8. // end attemt 1
    9. ...
    10. server->Wait();
    11. }
    12.  
    13. int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    14. QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);
    15. RunServer();
    16. return a.exec();
    17. }

    2. Server listening on 0.0.0.0:50051

    You still don't create the socket in the run thread but in the main thread...

    Directly inside the gRPC method, the socket also does not want to work.

    Qt Code:
    1. class GreeterServiceImpl final : public Greeter::Service {
    2. public:
    3. Status SayHello(ServerContext* context, const HelloRequest* request, HelloReply* reply) override {
    4. // begin attempt 2
    5. QSslSocket mSocket;
    6. QSslConfiguration config = mSocket.sslConfiguration();
    7. config.setPeerVerifyMode(QSslSocket::VerifyNone);
    8. config.setProtocol(QSsl::SecureProtocols);
    9. mSocket.setSslConfiguration(config);
    10. mSocket.connectToHostEncrypted("google.com", 8080);
    11. // end attemt 2
    12. std::string prefix("Hello ");
    13. reply->set_message(prefix + request->name());
    14. return Status::OK;
    15. }
    16. };
    17.  
    18. void RunServer() {
    19. std::string server_address("0.0.0.0:50051");
    20. GreeterServiceImpl service;
    21. grpc::EnableDefaultHealthCheckService(true);
    22. grpc::reflection::InitProtoReflectionServerBuilderPlugin();
    23. ServerBuilder builder;
    24. builder.AddListeningPort(server_address, grpc::InsecureServerCredentials());
    25. builder.RegisterService(&service);
    26. std::unique_ptr<Server> server(builder.BuildAndStart());
    27. std::cout << "Server listening on " << server_address << std::endl;
    28. server->Wait();
    29. }
    30.  
    31. int main(int argc, char** argv) {
    32. QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);
    33. RunServer();
    34. return a.exec();
    35. }

    Added after 21 minutes:


    I also tried to connect Qt and gRPC with the inclusion of a signal in the server. The latter would help connect the two frameworks.
    Qt Code:
    1. class GreeterServiceImpl final : public Greeter::Service, public QObject {
    2. Q_OBJECT
    3. public:
    4. Status SayHello(ServerContext* context, const HelloRequest* request, HelloReply* reply) override {
    5. std::string prefix("Hello ");
    6. reply->set_message(prefix + request->name());
    7. emit message();
    8. return Status::OK;
    9. }
    10. signals:
    11. void message();
    12. };

    But it failed
    Qt Code:
    1. In function `GreeterServiceImpl::GreeterServiceImpl()':
    2. error: undefined reference to `vtable for GreeterServiceImpl'
    3. In function `GreeterServiceImpl::~GreeterServiceImpl()':
    4. error: undefined reference to `vtable for GreeterServiceImpl'
    5. error: collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
