Java's KeeperState.Disconnected is 0, so probably that's what the C client should have.
This brings up another question: Is the C client supposed to be in sync with the Java client? I notice that there are multiple differences between C's ZOO_*_STATE and Java's KeeperState. -----Original Message----- From: Patrick Hunt [mailto:ph...@apache.org] Sent: Tuesday, October 13, 2009 5:03 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: C client (via zkpython) returns unknown state You're right, 0 should be something like "INITIALIZING_STATE" but it's not in zookeeper.h zookeeper_init(...) docs: * This method creates a new handle and a zookeeper session that corresponds * to that handle. Session establishment is asynchronous, meaning that the * session should not be considered established until (and unless) an * event of state ZOO_CONNECTED_STATE is received. Please enter a JIRA for this and we'll address it in the next release: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER Thanks for the report!
