About this module
Net::OSLC::CM provides a Perl interface to help implement OSLC‐CM Consumers according to OSLC specifications described at
open−services.net. In the current state, this module implements function to retrieve changeRequests from Service Providers and Service
It uses HTTP basic authentication to connect to the distant changeRequest database.
Net::OSLC::CM relies on:
use Net::OSLC::CM; my $oslccm = Net::OSLC::CM−>new( url => $self−>remote_url, username => $username, password => $password )); # Getting an array of changeRequests from the changeRequest database # (array of Net::OSLC::CM::ChangeRequest objects) my @results = $oslccm−>get_oslc_resources;
get_oslc_resources is a wrapping function that calls successively the following:
$oslccm−>url = "http://example.com"; # RDF data parser $oslccm−>parser( Net::OSLC::CM::Parser−>new(cm => $oslccm) ); # Assumes it'll get a Service Providers Catalog $oslccm−>create_catalog; # Gets the catalog (assuming it does exists to get the Service Providers information) $oslccm−>get_provider_catalog_resource; # Retrieves URLs of the Service Providers given by the Catalog $oslccm−>get_service_providers; # Gets changeRequests URLs from each Service Provider, creates a Net::OSLC::CM::ChangeRequest # object and pushes it into the $oslccm−>changeRequests array $oslccm−>get_changeRequests($oslccm−>providers); # Gets data for each changeRequest $oslccm−>load_changeRequests(); my @results = $oslccm−>changeRequests;
Methods you can call from Net::OSLC::CM
new ( $url, $username, $password )
Returns a new Net::OSLC::CM object to make a connection to the changeRequest database of given $url.
When the distant database requires HTTP basic authentication, you provide a username and a password at the creation.
Returns an array of Net::OSLC::CM::ChangeRequest objects.
Gets if it exists the Service Provider Catalog as a Net::OSLC::CM::Catalog object and performs a query to get the
referenced Service Providers . An OSLC Service Provider Catalog Document describes a catalog whose entries describe service
providers or out‐of‐line subcatalogs. OSLC CM service providers must provide a Service Provider Resource and MAY provide a
Service Provider Catalog Resource.
Creates an instance of the Net::OSLC::CM:Catalog class.
Populates an array of Service Providers objects.
_get_service_providers ( $provider )
For a given Catalog, gets the resources and properties for the provided Net::OSLC::CM::ServiceProvider object: queryCapability,
resourceShape and creationFactory.
(the following is quoted from the specifications on open-services.net)
- queryCapability: Enables clients to query across a collection of resources via HTTP GET or POST. To perform an HTTP GET query, an OSLC client starts with the base URI as defined by the oslc:queryBase property of a Query Capability, and appends to it query parameters in a syntax supported by the service.
- resourceShape: In some cases, to create resources and to query those that already exist within an OSLC Service, OSLC clients needs a way to learn which properties are commonly used in or required by the service. Resources meet this need by providing a machine‐readable definition of an OSLC resource type. A Resource Shape describes the properties that are allowed or required by one type of resource. Resource Shapes are intended to provide simple "hints" to clients at resource creation, update or query time.
- creationFactory: Enables clients to create new resources via HTTP POST.
Wrapping function to get every changeRequest from every Service Provider enlisted and its attributes.
_get_changeRequest ( $model )
Populates an array of Net::OSLC::CM::ChangeRequest objects. Takes in argument a RDF::Trine::Model object with the RDF model that was
parsed from the RDF data.
Loads the attributes (id, title, creator, description...) of the changeRequests by calling the
load method of the
Net:OSLC::CM::ChangeRequest class. See Net::OSLC::CM::ChangeRequest documentation for more information.
