NAME ^

SOAPjr - SOAP without the bloat and JR (JSON-RPC) with proper error handling and file uploads

VERSION ^

Version 1.1.4

SYNOPSIS ^

    Overview
    --------
    1. Receive request message
    2. Validate request message
    3. Process request message
    4. Create response message
    5. Configure response message
    6. Send response message 

    # The assumption is that this module will be used from within a perl script (or an apache request handler)
    # - use in the module
    use SOAPjr;

    # - create the SOAPjr server object
    # NOTE: This is the equivalent of jquery on the client side and may be created in the apache perl_startup.pl script so it's persistent
    my $server = SOAPjr->new($options);
    
    # 1. Receive request message
    # - your perl script is called either directly or as a handler
    # e.g. /SOAPjr.pl

    # 2. Validate request message
    # - create the inbound request object for this request
    my $request = $server->create_request($query_params_hashref, \%ENV);
    
    # - set any settings for this inbound request object
    $request->set({ OPTIONS => { "..." => "..." } });
    
    # 3. Process request message
    # This is where your development implementation happens
    # - process the request however you need to
    # ...
    
    # 4. Create response message
    # - then when you're ready you create a response object
    my $response = $self->create_response({ ENVELOPE => { "option1" => "XXX" } });
    
    # 5. Configure response message
    # - then set any of the response values
    $response->set({ HEAD => { "option1" => "DDD" }, BODY => { "option1" => "LLL" } });

    # 6. Add any errors you need to
    # - if your processing of $request creates any errors then just add them with $response->add_error()
    # e.g. 
    # $s = $r->add_error({
    #     context => "HEAD",
    #     property => "sid",
    #         error => {
    #         code => 401,
    #         message => "Invalid session ID"
    #     }
    # });
    # NOTE: $s (e.g. the return of add_error()) is a serialised_string of the current object after the error is added
    
    # 7. Send response message 
    # - then when you're done you send back your response
    my $send_result = $response->send({ HEAD => { "option1" => "DDD" }, BODY => { "option1" => "LLL" } });
    # or you can just get a serialised string of the object at any time using $response->output();
