NAME

HTTP::Response::JSON - a subclass of HTTP::Response that understands JSON

SYNOPSIS

 if ($response->isa('HTTP::Response::JSON')) {
     Your::Own::Code::do_something($response->json_content);
 }

DESCRIPTION

This is a simple subclass of HTTP::Response that implements a method "json_content" which returns the JSON-decoded contents of the response.

json_content

 Out: $perl_data

Returns the Perl data structure corresponding to the contents of this response.

Will throw an exception if the contents look like JSON but cannot be converted to JSON. Will return undef if the contents don't look like JSON.

content_is_text

Always returns true if this is application/json, contrary to what HTTP::Message says by default, to make sure that decoded_content is properly decoded as a Unicode string.
