All resources necessary to process a Request and produce a Response are bound to the lifecycle of a connection instance.


It is not recommended to use this directly as it will most likely result in corrupted operations with no regard to the transfer encoding or message format.

The connection can be accessed from the Request connection property. It is a simple gio-2.0/GLib.IOStream that provides native access to the input and output stream of the used technology.

The following example shows how to bypass processing with higher-level abstractions. It will only work on HTTP, as CGI-like protocols require the status to be part of the response headers.

var message = req.connection.output_stream;
message.write_all ("200 Success HTTP/1.1\r\n".data. null);
message.write_all ("Connection: close\r\n");
message.write_all ("Content-Type: text/plain\r\n");
message.write_all ("\r\n".data);
message.write_all ("Hello world!".data);
