Net::Jabber::Server - Jabber Server Library
Net::Jabber::Server is a module that provides a developer easy access
to developing applications that need an embedded Jabber server.
Server.pm seeks to provide enough high level APIs and automation of
the low level APIs that writing and spawning a Jabber Server in Perl
is trivial. For those that wish to work with the low level you can
do that too, but those functions are covered in the documentation for
Net::Jabber::Server provides functions to run a full Jabber server that
accepts incoming connections and delivers packets to external Jabber
servers. You can use all or none of the functions, there is no requirement.
For more information on how the details for how Net::Jabber is written
please see the help for Net::Jabber itself.
For a full list of high level functions available please see
use Net::Jabber qw(Server);
$Server = new Net::Jabber::Server();
%status = $Server->Process();
%status = $Server->Process(5);
new(debuglevel=>0|1|2, - creates the Server object. debugfile
debugfile=>string, should be set to the path for the debug
debugtime=>0|1) log to be written. If set to "stdout"
then the debug will go there. debuglevel
controls the amount of debug. For more
information about the valid setting for
debuglevel, debugfile, and debugtime see
Start(hostname=>string, - starts the server listening on the proper
jaberxml=>string) ports. hostname is a quick way of telling
the server the hostname to listen on.
jabberxml defines the path to a different
jabberd configuration file (default is
Process(integer) - takes the timeout period as an argument. If no
timeout is listed then the function blocks until
a packet is received. Otherwise it waits that
number of seconds and then exits so your program
can continue doing useful things. NOTE: This is
important for GUIs. You need to leave time to
process GUI commands even if you are waiting for
packets. The following are the possible return
values for each hash entry, and what they mean:
1 - Status ok, data received.
0 - Status ok, no data received.
undef - Status not ok, stop processing.
IMPORTANT: You need to check the output of every
Process. If you get an undef then the connection
died and you should behave accordingly.
Stop() - stops the server from running and shuts down all sub programs.
