NAME ^

WebService::Cmis::Client - Transport layer

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the workhorse communicating with the document manangement server by connecting to the REST service. It provides the initial access function to the repositories.

  use Cache::FileCache ();

  my $client = WebService::Cmis::getClient(
      url => "http://cmis.alfresco.com/service/cmis",
      cache => new Cache::FileCache({
        cache_root => "/tmp/cmis_client"
      }
    )
  )
  
  my $repo = $client->getRepository;

Parent class: REST::Client

removeFromCache($path, %params)

removes an item from the cache associated with the given path and url parameters

get($path, %params)

post($path, $payload, $contentType, %params)

does a post against the CMIS service. More than likely, you will not need to call this method. Instead, let the other objects to it for you.

put($path, $payload, $contentType, %params)

does a put against the CMIS service. More than likely, you will not need to call this method. Instead, let the other objects to it for you.

delete($url, %params)
