NAME ^

WebService::CRUST::Result

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $r = new Webservice::CRUST::Result->new($val, [$crust]);

Note that this object is generally only helpful when it is created by a WebService::CRUST call.

METHODS ^

string

The method used to stringify the object

result

An accessor for the raw converted hash result from the request

crust

An accessor that points to the WebService::CRUST object that made this request

AUTOLOAD ^

Any other method you call tries to get that value from the result.

If the value is a hash ref, it will be returned as another Result object;

If the value is an array ref, it will be returned as an array of Result objects, or as a ref to the array depending on the context in which it was called.

If the value is scalar it will just be returned as is.

INFLATION ^

If the value passed to new is a hash reference with a key called "xlink:href" then this module will look for keys called "args" and "href" and use them to construct a new request when that value is queried. For instance, assume this piece of XML is consumed by a WebService::CRUST object:

    <book name="So Long and Thank For All The Fish">
        <author xlink:href="http://someservice/author">
            <args first="Douglas" last="Adams" />
        </author>
        <price>42.00</price>
    </book>


    $crust->name;   # Returns 'So Long and Thanks For All The Fish'
    $crust->price;  # Returns '42.00'
    $crust->author; # Returns the results of a CRUST GET request to
                    # http://someservice/author?first=Douglas&last=Adams

This is pretty useful when you are exposing a database and you want to be able to follow relations fairly easily.
