NAME

LWP::UserAgent::JSON - a subclass of LWP::UserAgent that understands JSON

SYNOPSIS

 my $user_agent = LWP::UserAgent::JSON->new;
 my $request    = HTTP::Request::JSON->new(...);
 my $response   = $user_agent->request($request);
 # $response->isa('HTTP::Response::JSON') if we got back JSON

DESCRIPTION

This is a simple subclass of LWP::UserAgent which recognises if it gets JSON output back, and if so returns an HTTP::Response::JSON object instead of a HTTP::Response::JSON object. It exposes the logic of reblessing the HTTP::Response object in case you get handed a HTTP::Response object by some other method.

simple_request

As LWP::UserAgent::simple_request, but returns a HTTP::Response:JSON object instead of a HTTP::Response object if the response is JSON.

rebless_maybe

 In: $response
 Out: $reblessed

Supplied with a HTTP::Response object, looks to see if it's a JSON object, and if so reblesses it to be a HTTP::Response::JSON object. Returns whether it reblessed the object or not.
