DescriptorLibrary Functions

A descriptor library is an object that contains known definitions. It contains a cache of descriptor objects mapped by definition name, and contains all types of descriptors except for file sets.

If the application provides a definition name that is not in the library, the application can include a descriptor loader that attempts to resolve the missing descriptor.

DescriptorLibrary is provided by the protorpc.descriptor module.
