NAME ^

Audio::XMMSClient::XMLRPC - XMLRPC interface to xmms2

VERSION ^

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Audio::XMMSClient::XMLRPC;

    my $rpc = Audio::XMMSClient::XMLRPC->new();
    $rpc->loop;

FUNCTIONS ^

new

    my $rpc = Audio::XMMSClient::XMLRPC->new( \%options );

Creates a new Audio::XMMSClient::XMLRPC instance with the given %options. Valid options are:

no_httpd

If passed with a "true" value, prevents the creation and storage of the HTTP::Daemon object. This allows for deployment of a server object in other environments. Note that if this is set, the loop method described below will silently attempt to use the Net::Server module.

no_default

If passed with a "true" value, prevents the loading of the default methods provided with the RPC::XML distribution. The methods themselves are described below (see "The Default Methods Provided").

path
port
queue
timeout

These four are specific to the HTTP-based nature of the server. The path argument sets the additional URI path information that clients would use to contact the server. Internally, it is not used except in outgoing status and introspection reports. The host, port and queue arguments are passed to the HTTP::Daemon constructor if they are passed. They set the hostname, TCP/IP port, and socket listening queue, respectively. They may also be used if the server object tries to use Net::Server as an alternative server core.

loop

    $server->loop;

Enters the connection-accept loop, which generally does not return.

The Default Methods Provided

The following methods are provided with this package, and are the ones installed on newly-created server objects unless told not to. These are identified by their published names, as they are compiled internally as anonymous subroutines and thus cannot be called directly:

system.identity

returns a string value identifying the server name, version, and possibly a capability level. takes no arguments.

system.introspection

returns a series of struct objects that give overview documentation of one or more of the published methods. it may be called with a string identifying a single routine, in which case the return value is a struct. it may be called with an array of string values, in which case an array of struct values, one per element in, is returned. lastly, it may be called with no input parameters, in which case all published routines are documented. note that routines may be configured to be hidden from such introspection queries.

system.listmethods

returns a list of the published methods or a subset of them as an array of string values. if called with no parameters, returns all (non-hidden) method names. if called with a single string pattern, returns only those names that contain the string as a substring of their name (case-sensitive, and this is i<not> a regular expression evaluation).

system.methodhelp

takes either a single method name as a string, or a series of them as an array of string. the return value is the help text for the method, as either a string or array of string value. if the method(s) have no help text, the string will be null.

system.methodsignature

as above, but returns the signatures that the method accepts, as array of string representations. if only one method is requests via a string parameter, then the return value is the corresponding array. if the parameter in is an array, then the returned value will be an array of array of string.

system.multicall

this is a simple implementation of composite function calls in a single request. it takes an array of struct values. each struct has at least a c<methodname> member, which provides the name of the method to call. if there is also a c<params> member, it refers to an array of the parameters that should be passed to the call.

system.status

takes no arguments and returns a struct containing a number of system status values including (but not limited to) the current time on the server, the time the server was started (both of these are returned in both iso 8601 and unix-style integer formats), number of requests dispatched, and some identifying information (hostname, port, etc.).
