This module bundles everything that you might need in order to implement a Froody service.
To start with, we provide an API definition in Time::API. We have to provide an XML description of the publicly facing methods for our service. In this case, our API methods are:
froody.demo.hostname froody.demo.localtime froody.demo.uptime
We implement all the methods in the froody.demo namespace, as defined with Time::API
As per the documentation in Froody::Quickstart, you can see that for simple values, we can just return a scalar, which will be magicly placed inside the top level node of our response. More complex structures require returning a
HASHREF populated with the secondary elements and attributes of the top level XML node.
After we've loaded the implementation, we can start the standalone server. The current implementation of the standalone server will walk @INC to discover all Froody::Implementation subclasses, and register all required implementations.
Once the server has started, you can test the functionality of the server by using the froody script to connect to the server:
froody -u'http://localhost:4242/' froody.demo.localtime
to get the current time.
