NAME ^

Jifty::Handler - Methods related to the finding and returning content

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Jifty;
  Jifty->new();

  my $handler = Jifty::Handler->handle_request( cgi => $cgi );

  # after each request is handled
  Jifty::Handler->cleanup_request;

DESCRIPTION ^

Jifty::Handler provides methods required to find and return content to the browser. "handle_request", for instance, is the main entry point for HTTP requests.

new

Create a new Jifty::Handler object. Generally, Jifty.pm does this only once at startup.

view_handlers

Returns a list of modules implementing view for your Jifty application.

You can override this by specifying:

  framework:
      View:
         Handlers:
            - Jifty::View::Something::Handler
            - Jifty::View::SomethingElse::Handler

setup_view_handlers

Initialize all of our view handlers.

view ClassName

Returns the Jifty view handler for ClassName.

cgi

Returns the CGI object for the current request, or undef if there is none.

apache

Returns the HTML::Mason::FakeApache or Apache object for the current request, ot undef if there is none.

handle_request

When your server processs (be it Jifty-internal, FastCGI or anything else) wants to handle a request coming in from the outside world, you should call handle_request.

cgi

A CGI object that your server has already set up and loaded with your request's data.

send_http_header

Sends any relevent HTTP headers, by calling "send_http_header" in HTML::Mason::FakeApache. If this is running inside a standalone server, also sends the HTTP status header first.

Returns false if the header has already been sent.

cleanup_request

Dispatchers should call this at the end of each request, as a class method. It flushes the session to disk, as well as flushing Jifty::DBI's cache.
