Hello Nginx Gurus,
I'm kind of a newby in nginx plugin development, so trying to understand what's the best way to
connect to a proprietary backend system (that provides C API) from within nginx plugin?
As far as I understand the best way for such issues is to implement custom upstream proxy module but it's
pretty difficult to understand the low level protocol of the backend system, so I need to use the API it provides.
Could you suggest where to place the initialization code/connection code to the backend system and where to hold
the connection (which must be created only once) to the system itself.
