public abstract class PeerResolver

This class is the base class for the implementation of custom peer name resolvers. A peer name resolver is a discovery service used by peer channels to find peer nodes participating in a peer mesh. It is also used to "register" a node with a peer mesh, the mechanism by which the peer node becomes known and available from the peer mesh.
