NAME ^

Test::Reporter::POEGateway - A Test::Reporter::HTTPGateway using the power of POE

SYNOPSIS ^

        #!/usr/bin/perl
        use strict; use warnings;
        use Test::Reporter::POEGateway;

        # let it do the work!
        Test::Reporter::POEGateway->spawn();

        # run the kernel!
        POE::Kernel->run();

ABSTRACT ^

This implements the same logic as Test::Reporter::HTTPGateway but in POE. The reason for this is because I didn't have a cgi host :( Furthermore, this module splits the relaying logic into 2 separate modules. You can either run both in one process or separate. That way, you have more control over how the mailer will work. See Test::Reporter::POEGateway::Mailer for the mailing side of the module.

DESCRIPTION ^

Really, all you have to do is load the module and call it's spawn() method:

        use Test::Reporter::POEGateway;
        Test::Reporter::POEGateway->spawn( ... );

This method will return failure on errors or return success. Normally you don't need to pass any arguments to it, but if you want to do zany things, you can!

This constructor accepts either a hashref or a hash, valid options are:

alias

This sets the alias of the session.

The default is: POEGateway

mailer

This sets the mailer session that POEGateway will use to send reports. Useful to set if you have both running in the same process and you don't want to use the file-based method of saving reports. Beware: if the process/machine terminates and you have pending reports in the queue, they will be lost!

The default is: undef ( not used )

        use Test::Reporter::POEGateway;
        use Test::Reporter::POEGateway::Mailer;

        Test::Reporter::POEGateway->spawn(
                'mailer'        => 'mymailer',
        );
        Test::Reporter::POEGateway::Mailer->spawn(
                'alias'         => 'mymailer',
                'poegateway'    => 1,
                'mailer'        => 'SMTP',
                'mailer_conf'   => { ... },
        );

reports

This sets the path where it will store received report submissions. This effectively acts as a cache and lets the mailer pick up reports from the directory and send them.

The default is: $ENV{HOME}/cpan_reports

key_cb

This sets the callback routine if you want to require a key to use the gateway.

The callback will receive one argument: the key. It may be undefined or a string or whatever the submitter put in it. It should return either 1 or 0.

The default is: sub { 1 } # do not require a key

httpd

Sets various POE::Component::Server::SimpleHTTP options if desired. This should be a hashref. You normally would want to override the port, for example. Note: You cannot override the HANDLERS!

The default is: { ALIAS => HTTPD, PORT => 11_111, HOSTNAME => POEGateway.net }

Commands

There is only one command you can use, as this is a very simple module.

shutdown

Tells this module to shut down the underlying httpd session and terminate itself.

        $_[KERNEL]->post( 'POEGateway', 'shutdown' );

More Ideas

None as of now, if you have ideas please submit them to me!

Module Notes

You can enable debugging mode by doing this:

        sub Test::Reporter::POEGateway::DEBUG () { 1 }
        use Test::Reporter::POEGateway;
