NAME ^

Net::DBus::Binding::Server - A server to accept incoming connections

SYNOPSIS ^

Creating a new server and accepting client connections

  use Net::DBus::Binding::Server;

  my $server = Net::DBus::Binding::Server->new(address => "unix:path=/path/to/socket");

  $server->connection_callback(\&new_connection);

  sub new_connection {
      my $connection = shift;

      .. work with new connection...
  }

Managing the server and new connections in an event loop

  my $reactor = Net::DBus::Binding::Reactor->new();

  $reactor->manage($server);
  $reactor->run();

  sub new_connection {
      my $connection = shift;

      $reactor->manage($connection);
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

A server for receiving connection from client programs. The methods defined on this module have a close correspondance to the dbus_server_XXX methods in the C API, so for further details on their behaviour, the C API documentation may be of use.

METHODS ^

my $server = Net::DBus::Binding::Server->new(address => "unix:path=/path/to/socket");

Creates a new server binding it to the socket specified by the address parameter.

$status = $server->is_connected();

Returns zero if the server has been disconnected, otherwise a positive value is returned.

$server->disconnect()

Closes this server to the remote host. This method is called automatically during garbage collection (ie in the DESTROY method) if the programmer forgets to explicitly disconnect.

$server->set_watch_callbacks(\&add_watch, \&remove_watch, \&toggle_watch);

Register a set of callbacks for adding, removing & updating watches in the application's event loop. Each parameter should be a code reference, which on each invocation, will be supplied with two parameters, the server object and the watch object. If you are using a Net::DBus::Binding::Reactor object as the application event loop, then the 'manage' method on that object will call this on your behalf.

$server->set_timeout_callbacks(\&add_timeout, \&remove_timeout, \&toggle_timeout);

Register a set of callbacks for adding, removing & updating timeouts in the application's event loop. Each parameter should be a code reference, which on each invocation, will be supplied with two parameters, the server object and the timeout object. If you are using a Net::DBus::Binding::Reactor object as the application event loop, then the 'manage' method on that object will call this on your behalf.

$server->set_connection_callback(\&handler)

Registers the handler to use for dealing with new incoming connections from clients. The code reference will be invoked each time a new client connects and supplied with a single parameter which is the Net::DBus::Binding::Connection object representing the client.
