NAME ^

Net::XMPP::Message - XMPP Message Module

SYNOPSIS ^

  Net::XMPP::Message is a companion to the Net::XMPP module.
  It provides the user a simple interface to set and retrieve all
  parts of an XMPP Message.

DESCRIPTION ^

  A Net::XMPP::Message object is passed to the callback function for
  the message.  Also, the first argument to the callback functions is
  the session ID from XML::Stream.  There are some cases where you
  might want thisinformation, like if you created a Client that
  connects to two servers at once, or for writing a mini server.

    use Net::XMPP;

    sub message {
      my ($sid,$Mess) = @_;
      .
      .
      .
    }

  You now have access to all of the retrieval functions available.

  To create a new message to send to the server:

    use Net::XMPP;

    $Mess = Net::XMPP::Message->new();

  Now you can call the creation functions below to populate the tag
  before sending it.

METHODS ^

Retrieval functions

  GetTo()      - returns the value in the to='' attribute for the
  GetTo("jid")   <message/>.  If you specify "jid" as an argument
                 then a Net::XMPP::JID object is returned and
                 you can easily parse the parts of the JID.

                 $to    = $Mess->GetTo();
                 $toJID = $Mess->GetTo("jid");

  GetFrom()      - returns the value in the from='' attribute for the
  GetFrom("jid")   <message/>.  If you specify "jid" as an argument
                   then a Net::XMPP::JID object is returned and
                   you can easily parse the parts of the JID.

                   $from    = $Mess->GetFrom();
                   $fromJID = $Mess->GetFrom("jid");

  GetType() - returns the type='' attribute of the <message/>.  Each
              message is one of four types:

                normal        regular message (default if type is blank)
                chat          one on one chat
                groupchat     multi-person chat
                headline      headline
                error         error message

              $type = $Mess->GetType();

  GetSubject() - returns the data in the <subject/> tag.

                 $subject = $Mess->GetSubject();

  GetBody() - returns the data in the <body/> tag.

              $body = $Mess->GetBody();

  GetThread() - returns the data in the <thread/> tag.

                $thread = $Mess->GetThread();

  GetError() - returns a string with the data of the <error/> tag.

               $error = $Mess->GetError();

  GetErrorCode() - returns a string with the code='' attribute of the
                   <error/> tag.

                   $errCode = $Mess->GetErrorCode();

  GetTimeStamp() - returns a string that represents the time this
                   message object was created (and probably received)
                   for sending to the client.  If there is a
                   jabber:x:delay tag then that time is used to show
                   when the message was sent.

                   $date = $Mess->GetTimeStamp();

Creation functions

  SetMessage(to=>string|JID,    - set multiple fields in the <message/>
             from=>string|JID,    at one time.  This is a cumulative
             type=>string,        and over writing action.  If you set
             subject=>string,     the "to" attribute twice, the second
             body=>string,        setting is what is used.  If you set
             thread=>string,      the subject, and then set the body
             errorcode=>string,   then both will be in the <message/>
             error=>string)       tag.  For valid settings read the
                                  specific Set functions below.

                            $Mess->SetMessage(TO=>"bob\@jabber.org",
                                              Subject=>"Lunch",
                                              BoDy=>"Let's do lunch!");
                            $Mess->SetMessage(to=>"bob\@jabber.org",
                                              from=>"jabber.org",
                                              errorcode=>404,
                                              error=>"Not found");

  SetTo(string) - sets the to='' attribute.  You can either pass
  SetTo(JID)      a string or a JID object.  They must be valid JIDs
                  or the server will return an error message.
                  (ie.  bob@jabber.org/Work)

                  $Mess->SetTo("test\@jabber.org");

  SetFrom(string) - sets the from='' attribute.  You can either pass
  SetFrom(JID)      a string or a JID object.  They must be valid JIDs
                    or the server will return an error message. (ie.
                    jabber:bob@jabber.org/Work) This field is not
                    required if you are writing a Client since the
                    server will put the JID of your connection in
                    there to prevent spamming.

                    $Mess->SetFrom("me\@jabber.org");

  SetType(string) - sets the type attribute.  Valid settings are:

                      normal         regular message (default if blank)
                      chat           one one one chat style message
                      groupchat      multi-person chatroom message
                      headline       news headline, stock ticker, etc...
                      error          error message

                    $Mess->SetType("groupchat");

  SetSubject(string) - sets the subject of the <message/>.

                       $Mess->SetSubject("This is a test");

  SetBody(string) - sets the body of the <message/>.

                    $Mess->SetBody("To be or not to be...");

  SetThread(string) - sets the thread of the <message/>.  You should
                      copy this out of the message being replied to so
                      that the thread is maintained.

                      $Mess->SetThread("AE912B3");

  SetErrorCode(string) - sets the error code of the <message/>.

                         $Mess->SetErrorCode(403);

  SetError(string) - sets the error string of the <message/>.

                     $Mess->SetError("Permission Denied");

  Reply(hash) - creates a new Message object and populates the
                to/from, and the subject by putting "re: " in
                front.  If you specify a hash the same as with
                SetMessage then those values will override the
                Reply values.

                $Reply = $Mess->Reply();
                $Reply = $Mess->Reply(type=>"chat");

               $Mess->RemoveTo();
