New to protobuf but my google-fu is failing me here. I would like to write
a receiver that parses a base message, then distributes it to registered
receivers who know how to parse the extensions. I don't want the receiver
to know about the extensions, other than the range defined in the base
.proto. From reading the docs, you can define extensions to a message in
separate .proto files. But it seems like the receiver would need to know
about all the extensions via an ExtensionRegistry. This is to be used
along with Netty - another user is dealing with a similar thing shown
Is there a way around this? A code example, ideally in Java?
