Move Connection from Core to Host

Authored by labath on Jun 20 2017, 5:56 AM.



All implementations of the connection interface live in the Host module
already, so it makes sense for the interface itself to be defined there.

This is how things would look like if we move Connection to Utility instead. I
needed to do two things to make this happen:

  • Keep Connection::CreateDefaultConnection in Host (now known as Host::CreateDefaultConnection), because this actually creates concrete instances).
  • Move IOObject to Utility as well. Connection interface was depending on this class. Although theoretically a forward declaration could suffice, we still shouldn't depend on stuff forward-declared in another module. The same rationale can apply to this class as well -- it's an abstract interface, which can live in Utility, and all concrete instances can (hopefully) stay in Host.
