Concurrent Auctions - ready for review

The proposal for concurrent auction support will be for Prebid.js to hide details of concurrency from the end user (publisher). They will still use the same public API's that are in place (i.e. requestBids() etc) but receive the benefit of better performance (not having to have bid requests queued). Concurrency just works (CJW).

When a getTargeting request is made to prebid, prebid will deteremine the best bid that is available at the given time out of the pool of available bids.

Auction Manager // new class to replace bidmanager.js

  • Is responsible for storing auction references (each auction object will store N # of bids associated with a particular call of requestBids()) in a internal structure
  • Concurrent auctions will be supported via creating new auction instances
  • auction instances will be bound to a specific auctionRequest copy that is passed from adaptermanager.js
