Re: Read only attributes on multicast extension swiftlet

Well, not really alot more work. You have only to iterate with CLI through the topic entity list of the connection and store it to recreate it later.
The reason why multicast address, interface address, multicast port are read-only attributes is that a change of one of those attributes would require to remove/recreate that connection with all the defined topics. There's no way to just change the interface address in the Network Swiftlet or in the underlying multicast at all. This is also the case for all TCP listeners/connector and thus all those attributes of all those entities are consequently read-only.
