SYNOPSIS

  use NNexus::Job;
  $job = NNexus::Job->new(
    db=>$db,
    body=>$body,
    format=>$format,
    function=>$function,
    domain=>$domain);

  $result = $job->result;
  $message = $job->message;
  $status = $job->status;

DESCRIPTION

This class serves as an encapsulation for users' NNexus requests, driven by a minimal API.

METHODS

$job = NNexus::Job->new(%options);

Creates a new job object, customized via an options hash. Admissible options are:

  • body: The textual payload to be autolinked/indexed/etc.

  • format: The format of the given body. Supported: tex|html

  • function: Operation to be performed. Currently supported:

    • linkentry: Autolinks a given body returning a result in the same format

    • indexentry: Indexes a given web resource (URL), given by the "url" option

  • url

    • for function "indexentry": URL at which to begin an indexing job

    • for function "linkentry": URL to record for change management and invalidation

  • domain: Domain to use as the reference knowledge base for autolinking/indexing

  • anntation: serialization format for annotation (links, JSON, RDFa)

  • embed: boolean for embedded or stand-off annotations

  • db: An initialized NNexus::DB object (typically internal)

  • verbosity: boolean switching verbose logging on and off

  • dom: (optional) overrides the Mojo::DOM object for the given url (function='indexentry')

  • should_update: boolean switching between updating all indexed objects (default) or only indexing new objects instead. (function='indexentry')

$job->execute;

Executes the job prepared by the new method.

$response = $job->response;

Retrieves the job result. Returns a hash ref with three fields:

  • result: the job result (e.g. a payload for a linking job)

  • message: a human-readable description of the job

  • status: a machine-readable status report

$result = $job->result;

Shorthand for $job->response->{result}

$status = $job->status;

Shorthand for $job->response->{status}

$message = $job->message;

Shorthand for $job->response->{message}
