CONTENTS

VERSION

    use OpenXPKI::Client;
    my $client = OpenXPKI::Client->new(

             SOCKETFILE => ./foo.socket,

DESCRIPTION

OpenXPKI::Client is a base class for client communication with an OpenXPKI server daemon.

INTERFACE

    BUILD

See perldoc Class::Std.

    START

See perldoc Class::Std.

    talk

Expects a hash reference as first argument. Serializes the argument and sends it to the OpenXPKI server. Throws an exception if the connection is not in communication state ’can_send’.

    collect

Reads an answer from the OpenXPKI server, deserializes the message and returns the corresponding data structure. Throws an exception if the connection is not in communication state ’can_receive’.

    get_communication_state

Get internal communication state. Returns ’can_send’ if the next action should be a talk() call. Returns ’can_receive’ if the next action should be a collect() call.

    send_service_msg

Send a service message. The first argument must be a string identifying the service command to send. The (optional) second argument is a hash reference containing the arguments to be sent along with the service message. The caller must assure that this argument is properly specified.

    send_command_msg

Send a service command message. The first argument must be a string identifying the command to send. The (optional) second argument is a hash reference containing the arguments to be sent along with the command message.

    send_receive_service_msg

Send a service message, reads the response and returns it. See send_service_msg.

    send_receive_command_msg

Send a service command message, reads the response and returns it. See send_command_msg.

    init_session

Initialize session. If the named argument SESSION_ID exists, this session is re-opened, otherwise a new session is created. Returns the first server response (see collect()).

    get_session_id

Returns current session ID (or undef if no session is active).

    set_timeout

Set socket read timeout (seconds, default: 30).

DIAGNOSTICS

    is_connected

returns true on a normal established connection. Returns false if the connection is missing or something goes wrong during the check.

    is_logged_in

returns true if a connection is available and the user has finished authentication (i.e. PING returns ’SERVICE_READY’).

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

OpenXPKI::Client requires no configuration files or environment variables.

DEPENDENCIES

Requires an OpenXPKI perl core module installation.

INCOMPATIBILITIES

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

No bugs have been reported.
