NAME ^

Class::Scaffold::App - Base class for framework applications

VERSION ^

version 1.102280

SYNOPSIS ^

    use parent 'Class::Scaffold::App';

    sub app_code {
        my $self = shift;
        $self->SUPER::app_code(@_);
        # ... application-specific tasks ...
    }

    main->new->run_app;

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the base class for applications built with the Class::Scaffold framework, be they command-line applications or server-based applications. Applications will subclass this class, implement their specific tasks and call run_app().

METHODS ^

run_app

This is the main method that application subclasses should invoke. It calls the other methods described here. If there is an exception, it catches and logs it.

app_code

Called by run_app() right at the beginning. Override this method in your application-specific subclass to do any initialization your application needs.

app_finish

Called by run_app() within a try/catch-block. Override this method to do the actual application-specific work.

app_init

Called by run_app() right before the end. Override this method to do any cleanup your application needs.

initialized

Normally, app_init() is called only once, namely, when the program subclasses this class and does main->new->run_app. However, if used from within mod_perl, for example, the application is a cached object and run_app() is called repeatedly from the outside. In this case, app_init() should be called only once. We do this with the boolean flag initialized().

INSTALLATION ^

See perlmodinstall for information and options on installing Perl modules.
