NetSDS::Message - common mobile message (SMS, MMS, IM)


        use NetSDS::Message;


        $msg = NetSDS::Message->new(
                src_addr => '1234@mtsgw',
                dst_addr => '380441234567@mtsgw',
                body => $content,


NetSDS::Message is a superclass for other modules implementing API to exact structure of some messaging data (i.e. CPA2, SMS, MMS, etc).

This module implemented to avoid duplication of code providing common functionality for all message types like managing addresses, headers, preparing reply message and so on.


new([...]) - class constructor
    my $object = NetSDS::SomeClass->new(%options);
message_id([$value]) - set/get message id
        $msg_id = $msg->message_id();
src_addr() - set/get source address
src_addr_native() - get native form of source address
        # Set address

        # Get native form of address
        $phone = $msg->src_addr_native(); # return '380121234567'
dst_addr() - set/get destination address
        $dst_addr = $msg->dst_addr();
dst_addr_native() - get native form of destination address
        if ($mo_msg->dst_addr_native() eq '1234') {
                print "Received SMS to 1234";
subject() - set/get message subject
        $msg->subject('Hello there');
media() - set/get message media

Paramters: new media if set or none if get

Supported media types: 'sms', 'mms', 'ussd'. In fact media types processing is not responsibility of this module and implemented in other modules.

header($name[, $value]) - set/get header

Paramters: header name, new header value

Returns: header value

Message headers implemented as hash reference and contains supplementary information about message. All header name characters are lowercased and all '-' replaced with '_'.

        # Set header
        $msg->header('X-Beer', 'Guinness');

        # Get this header
        $beer = $msg->header('x_beer');
format() - get/set message format

Paramters: new format name

Returns: format name

Message format provides is related to transport layer code and describe data structure of message body.

Supported formats:

sms - generic SMS data for ETSI GSM 03.40 compliant implementations. See NetSDS::Message::SMS for details.

cpa2 - CPA2 compatible structure. See NetSDS::Message::CPA2 for details.

reply() - make reply message

This message allows to make reply to current one. Source and destination message are exchanged, media left the same.


_make_id($system_name) - generate message id

This method implements automatic generation of message id using make_uuid() routine. System name is set to 'netsds.generic' if not given in arguments.


See samples directory for examples.
