NSNetService classes for Xojo

We had for years the MBS Xojo Network Kit to provide Bonjour services for Xojo iOS applications.

Since Xojo 2020r2 can use plugins on iOS, we deprecated the Kit and now provide a replacement via NSNetServiceMBS and NSNetServiceBrowserMBS classes.

The classes includes:
  • asynchronously browses for domains to use
  • asynchronously browses for services with given type
  • asynchronously publishes services
  • query/publish TXT Record data.
  • Receive events for a service and in browser.
  • Parses IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
  • Encode and decode TXT record data.
Seems to work fine so far for console, web, desktop and iOS projects.

If you have needs for performing network tasks using Apple's frameworks, check NSURLSessionMBS class. It allows upload and download via lots of options and latest TLS encryption.

Coming soon with next pre-release. Please do not hesitate to send us comments, questions or feedback.
