NAME ^

Gantry::Server - HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI subclass providing stand alone server

SYNOPSIS ^

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    use strict;

    use Gantry::Server;

    use lib '/home/myhome/lib';

    use YourApp qw{ -Engine=CGI -TemplateEngine=Default };

    my $cgi_engine = Gantry::Engine::CGI->new();
    $cgi_engine->add_location( '/', 'YourApp' );

    my $server = Gantry::Server->new();
    # pass a port number to the above constructor if you don't want 8080.

    $server->set_engine_object( $cgi_engine );
    $server->run();

DESCRIPTION ^

This module subclasses HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI to provide a stand alone server for any Gantry app. Pretend you are deploying to a CGI environment, but replace

    $cgi_engine->dispatch();

with

    use Gantry::Server;

    my $server = Gantry::Server->new();
    $server->set_engine_object( $cgi_engine );
    $server->run();

Note that you must call set_engine_object before calling run, and you must pass it a valid Gantry::Engine::CGI object with the proper locations and config definitions.

By default, your server will start on port 8080. If you want a different port, pass it to the constructor. You can generate the above script, with port control, in bigtop by doing this in your config section:

    config {
        engine CGI;
        CGI    Gantry { with_server 1; }
        #...
    }
    app YourApp {
        #...
    }

METHODS ^

set_engine_object

You must call this before calling run. Pass it a Gantry::Engine::CGI object.

run

This starts the server and never returns.

handler

This method overrides the parent version to avoid taking form parameters prematurely.

handle_request

This method functions as a little web server processing http requests (but it leans heavily on HTTP::Server::Simple::CGI).

handle_request_test

This method pretends to be a web server, but only handles a single request before returning. This is useful for testing your Gantry app without having to use sockets.

handle_request_test_post

This is the same as handle_request_test, but it treats the request as a POST. This is mainly used for form testing.

handle_request_test_xml

This method is like handle_request_test, but for SOAP packets. Call it with the location you want to hit and the XML packet to PUT there. Returns whatever the server returns.

net_server

Retrieves the defined Net::Sever engine type

set_net_server

optionaly you can set a Net::Sever engine type ( see Net::Server ).

 $server->set_net_server( 'Net::Server::PreForkSimple' );
setup_server_url

Builds and sets the SERVER_URL environment variable.
