In the development and testing environment, it is often necessary to bypass the registration center and only test the specified service provider. At this time, point-to-point direct connection may be required. The point-to-point direct connection method will use the service interface as the unit and ignore the provider list of the registration center.

Configuration via XML

<dubbo:reference id="xxxService" interface="" url="dubbo://localhost:20890" />
