NAME ^

POE::Component::Client::HTTP::Request - an HTTP request class

VERSION ^

version 0.949

SYNOPSIS ^

  # Used internally by POE::Component::Client::HTTP

DESCRIPTION ^

POE::Component::Client::HTTP::Request encapsulates the state of requests POE::Component::Client::HTTP requests throughout their life cycles. There turns out to be a lot of state to manage.

CONSTRUCTOR ^

new NAMED_PARAMETERS

Create a POE::Component::Client::HTTP object to manage a request. The constructor takes several named parameters:

Request => HTTP_REQUEST

A POE::Component::Client::HTTP::Request object encapsulates a plain HTTP::Request. Required.

Factory => POE_COMPONENT_CLIENT_HTTP_REQUESTFACTORY

The request may create additional requests during its lifetime, for example when following redirects. The Factory parameter specifies the POE::Component::Client::HTTP::RequestFactory that may be used to create them. Required.

Postback => RESPONSE_POSTBACK

POE::Component::Client::HTTP creates a postback that will be used to send responses to the requesting session. Required.

Progress => PROGRESS_POSTBACK

Sets the progress notification if the user has requested progress events. Optional.

Proxy

Sets the proxy used for this request, if requested by the user. Optional.

METHODS ^

ID

Return the request's unique ID.

return_response

Sends a response back to the user's session. Called by POE::Component::Client::HTTP when a complete response has arrived.

add_eof

Called by POE::Component::Client::HTTP to indicate EOF has arrived.

add_content PARSED_DATA

Called by POE::Component::Client::HTTP to add content data to an incrementally built response. If PARSED_DATA is an object, it is treated like an HTTP::Headers object and its headers are assimilated into the response being built by the request. Otherwise the PARSED_DATA is appended to the response's content.

timer TIMER

Accessor to manipulate the request's timeout timer. Sets the request's timer if TIMER is specified, otherwise merely fetches the one currently associated with the request.

create_timer TIMEOUT

Creates and sets a timer for this request. TIMEOUT is the number of seconds this request may live.

remove_timeout

Turn off the timer associated with this request, and discard it.

postback POSTBACK

Accessor to manipulate the postback associated with this request. Sets the postback if POSTBACK is defined, otherwise merely fetches it.

does_redirect SOMETHING

FIXME - Not sure what this accessor does.

check_redirect

Check whether the last response is a redirect, the request is permitted to follow redirects, and the maximum number of redirects has not been met. Initiate a redirect if all conditions are favorable.

close_connection

Each active request object contains an internal connection. This method closes it.

send_to_wheel

Transmit the request to the socket associated with this request.

wheel

An accessor to return the wheel associated with this request.

error ERROR_CODE, ERROR_MESSAGE

Generate an error response, and post it back to the user's session.
