 use parent 'Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP';

DESCRIPTION

The Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP package is an HTTP network adapter for Neo4j::Driver, using LWP::UserAgent to connect to the Neo4j server via HTTP or HTTPS.

HTTPS connections require LWP::Protocol::https to be installed.

METHODS

Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP implements the following methods; see "Network adapter API for HTTP" in Neo4j::Driver::Plugin.

  • date_header

  • fetch_all

  • fetch_event

  • http_header

  • http_reason

  • json_coder

  • request

  • uri

In this module, request() always blocks until the HTTP response has been fully received. Therefore none of the other methods will ever block.

In addition to the methods listed above, Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP implements the following methods.

new

 $adapter = Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP->new( $driver );

Creates a new Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP adapter and configures it using the given Neo4j::Driver.

ua

 use parent 'Neo4j::Driver::Net::HTTP::LWP';
 sub foo {
   my $self = shift;
   $ua = $self->ua;
   ...
 }

Returns the LWP::UserAgent instance in use. Meant to facilitate reuse.

BUGS

The fetch_event() method has not yet been optimised.
