NAME ^

POE::Component::Lightspeed::Server - The "hubs" of the Lightspeed network

SYNOPSIS ^

        use POE;
        use POE::Component::Lightspeed::Server;

        POE::Component::Lightspeed::Server->spawn(
                'ALIAS'         =>      'myclient',
                'KERNEL'        =>      'mybox',
                'ADDRESS'       =>      'localhost',
                'PORT'          =>      5634,
                'SERIALIZERS'   =>      [ qw( MySerializer Storable ) ],
                'COMPRESSION'   =>      1,
        ) or die "Unable to create Server session!";

        # Communicate with the rest of the network once they connect!

ABSTRACT ^

        The Lightspeed Server session

DESCRIPTION ^

This module listens for connections from remote Lightspeed clients. Usage is exactly the same as described in the Lightspeed documentation.

Starting Lightspeed::Server

To start the server, just call it's spawn method:

        POE::Component::Lightspeed::Server->spawn(
                'ALIAS'         =>      'myclient',
                'KERNEL'        =>      'mybox',
                'ADDRESS'       =>      'localhost',
                'PORT'          =>      5634,
                'SERIALIZERS'   =>      [ qw( MySerializer Storable ) ],
                'COMPRESSION'   =>      1,
        ) or die "Unable to create Server session!";

This method will return undef on error or return success.

This constructor accepts only 8 options.

ADDRESS

The address to listen on.

This is the only MANDATORY argument.

ALIAS

This will set the alias this client session uses in the POE Kernel.

This will default to "lightspeed_server" or "lightspeed_serverX" where x is a number sequence.

PORT

The port to listen on.

This will default to '9876'.

KERNEL

The descriptive name of the local kernel.

This will default to $POE::Kernel::poe_kernel->ID().

SERIALIZERS

This should be an arrayref of serializers to use

This will default to: [ qw( Storable YAML ) ]

COMPRESSION

This is the boolean option passed to POE::Filter::Reference

This will default to false ( 0 )

SSLKEYCERT

This should be an arrayref of 2 elements: - the public key location - certificate location

Supplying this argument will make the connections use SSL encryption.

This will default to nothing, and not use SSL at all.

PASSWORD

The password for the server, used in the connection stage.

This will default to nothing.

AUTHCLIENT

This should be a subroutine reference which will be asked whether to accept a new connection or not.

        Arguments:
                - local address
                - local port
                - remote address
                - remote port

        Should return a boolean true/false if the client is accepted or not

This will default to nothing.

Usage

The Server session will listen for connections and announce them to the Lightspeed network. Then, message-passing operations can BEGIN!

It's pretty strict about the initial connection to the client, and will disconnect them if it finds any errors.

Commands

There's only one command you can send: the shutdown event.

Keep in mind that you need the alias of the session if you have several of them running!

$kernel->post( 'lightspeed_server', 'shutdown' );

Notes

This module is very picky about capitalization!

All of the options are uppercase, to avoid confusion.

You can enable debugging mode by doing this:

        sub POE::Component::Lightspeed::Server::DEBUG () { 1 }
        use POE::Component::Lightspeed::Server;

EXPORT ^

Nothing.
