Catalyst::Controller::Atompub - A Catalyst controller for the Atom Publishing Protocol
Catalyst::Controller::Atompub provides a base class for the Atom Publishing Protocol servers. This module handles all core server processing based on the Atom Publishing Protocol described at http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5023.txt.
Implementations must subclass the following modules.
Presents information of collections in a Service Document.
Publishes and edits resources in the collection.
At first, install sample samples/MyAtom in SAMPLES and read controller classes. The code is explained in Catalyst::Controller::Atompub::Service and Catalyst::Controller::Atompub::Collection.
This module was tested in July2007InteropTokyo and November2007Interop, and interoperated with other implementations. See http://intertwingly.net/wiki/pie/July2007InteropTokyo and http://www.intertwingly.net/wiki/pie/November2007Interop in detail.
Sample codes are found in samples/ directory. The following resources are required:
Catalyst v5.7 or later
Catalyst::Model::DBIC::Schema v0.20 or later
Catalyst::View::TT v0.25 or later (MyBlog)
Catalyst Plugins (MyBlog, OurBlogs)
SQLite v3.0 or later
Initialize your database with init.sql before running the samples. The initialization script assums that database is test.db.
This sample is minimum implementation of the Atom Publishing Protocol. It has a single collection containing Entry Resources. Cache controll and feed paging are not provided. Errors are ignored.
URI of the Service Document is http://localhost:3000/myservice .
This sample is a kind of tutorial.
This sample implements many features of the Atom Publishing Protocol. It has two collections; one collection contains Entry Resources, the other contains Media Resources (images). The server provides basic authentication, cache controll and feed paging. Duplicate detection of resource names is also implemented. Errors are properly handled.
URI of the Service Document is http://localhost:3000/service . This sample also provides a HTML view at http://localhost:3000/html .
In this sample, collection URIs depend on the user. Authentication is required to get Service Documents at http://localhost:3000/service. In the Service Document, the collection URI is found and looks like http://localhost:3000/collection/<username>. Users are required to be authenticated before posting member resources to their own collection.
