I have a question regarding Containers.

Is there a new instance created on the server for each player using the GUI?

I am a bit confused as a Container contains a list of players and a list of crafters.


I am asking because I want to reduce the number of updates I send to the client by caching values in the Container (on the server) and only send information if something changed.

But I don't know if there is a one to one relationship between Container instances and players having the GUI open.

Yes, there is one container per player per GUI.

The "crafters" is a stupid name, it's probably called "listeners" or similar in the original code ("Listener already listening" message in addCraftingToCrafters suggests this). Maybe notch originally intended a different design (one Container per GUI with multiple players attached) but this apparently never got implemented or was changed early on.
