Net::EPP::Frame::ObjectSpec - metadata about EPP object types
use Net::EPP::Frame; use strict; # create an EPP frame: my $check = Net::EPP::Frame::Command::Check->new; # get the spec: my @spec = Net::EPP::Frame::ObjectSpec->spec('domain'); # create an object: my $domain = $check->addObject(@spec); # set the attributes: my $name = $check->createElement('domain:name'); $name->addText('example.tld'); # assemble the frame: $domain->appendChild($name); $check->getCommandNode->appendChild($domain); print $check->toString;
EPP is the Extensible Provisioning Protocol. EPP (defined in RFC 4930) is an application layer client-server protocol for the provisioning and management of objects stored in a shared central repository. Specified in XML, the protocol defines generic object management operations and an extensible framework that maps protocol operations to objects. As of writing, its only well-developed application is the provisioning of Internet domain names, hosts, and related contact details.
Net::EPP::Frame::ObjectSpec is a simple module designed to provide easy access to metadata for the object types defined in the EPP specification.
my @spec = Net::EPP::Frame::ObjectSpec->spec($type);
This function returns an array containing metadata for the given object type. If no metadata is registered then the function returns undef.
The array contains three members:
@spec = ( $type, $xmlns, $schemaLocation, );
$type is the same as the supplied argument, and the other two members correspond to the XML attributes used to specify the object in an EPP
The objects currently registered are:
domain, for domain names.
host, for DNS server hosts.
contact, for contact objects.
secDNS, for DNSSEC information.
