NAME ^

JMX::Jmx4Perl::J4psh::Command - Base object for commands

DESCRIPTION ^

This is the base command from which all j4psh commands should be extended. It provides registration hooks so that the command handler can determine the position of this command in the menu structure. Additionally it provides common methods useful for each command to perform its action.

A JMX::Jmx4Perl::J4psh::Command is a collection of shell commands, grouped in a certain context. It can be reused in different contexts and hence can occur at different places in the menu structure.

METHODS ^

$command_handler = new JMX::Jmx4Perl::Command($context)

Constructor, which should not called be directly on this module but on a submodule. In fact, it will be called (indirectly) only by the JMX::Jmx4Perl::J4psh::CommandHandler during the command registration process. The single argument required is the central context object.

$global_commands = $cmd->global_commands

This method is called by the command handler during registration in order to obtain the global commands which are always present in the menu. The default implementation returns undef which means that no global commands should be registered. Overwrite this to provide a command hashref as known to Term::ShellUI for setting the global commands.

$top_commands = $cmd->top_commands

This method is called by the command handler during registration in order to obtain the top commands which are present in the top level menu. The default implementation returns undef which means that no top commands are to be registered. Overwrite this to provide a command hashref as known to Term::ShellUI for setting the top commands.

$context = $cmd->context

Get the context object used during construction. This is a convenience method for sublassed commands.

$complete_handler = $cmd->complete

Convenience method to get the JMX::Jmx4perl::J4psh::CompletionHandler for getting various command line completions.

$agent = $cmd->agent

Convenience method to get the JMX::Jmx4Perl agent in order to contact the server agent bundle (via JMX::Jmx4Perl)

@colors = $cmd->color(@color_ids)

Return a list of ANSI color strings for the given symbolic color names which are looked up from the current color theme. If no coloring is enabled, empty strings are returned. This method dispatched directly to the underylying context object.

$cmd->push_on_stack("context",$cmds)

Rerturn a sub (closure) which can be used as a command to update the context stack managed by the command handler. Update in this sense means push the given context ("context") on the stack, remembering the provided shell commands $cmds for later use when traversing the stack upwards via ..

$cmd->pop_off_stack

Go up one level in the stack

$cmd->reset_stack

Reset the stack completely effectively jumping on top of it

($opts,@args) = $cmd->extract_command_options($spec,@args);

Extract any options from a command specified via $spec. This method uses Getopt::Long for extrating the options. It returns a hashref with the extracted options and an array of remaining arguments

$label = $cmd->format_date($time)

Formats a date like for ls -l:

 Dec  2 18:21
 Jun 23  2009

This format is especially useful when used in listing.

$cmd->print_paged($txt,$nr_lines)

Use a pager for printing $txt which has $nr_lines lines. Only if $nr_lines exceeds a certain limit (default: 24), then the pager is used, otherwise $txt is printed directly.

$trimmed = $cmd->trim_string($string,$max)

Trim a string $string to a certain length $max, i.e. if $string is larger than $max, then it is truncated to to $max-3 and ... is appended. If it is less or equal, than $string is returned unchanged.

$converted = $cmd->convert_wildcard_pattern_to_regexp($orig)

Convert the wildcards * and . to their regexp equivalent and return a regular expression.
