WWW::Scripter::Plugin:UserxContributed Perl DocuWWW::Scripter::Plugin::Ajax(3)

NAME
       WWW::Scripter::Plugin::Ajax - WWW::Scripter plugin that provides	the
       XMLHttpRequest object

VERSION
       Version 0.09 (alpha)

SYNOPSIS
	 use WWW::Scripter;
	 $w = new WWW::Scripter;

	 $m->use_plugin('Ajax');
	 $m->get('http://some.site.com/that/relies/on/ajax');

DESCRIPTION
       This module is a	plugin for WWW::Scripter that loads the	JavaScript
       plugin (WWW::Scripter::Plugin::JavaScript) and provides it with the
       "XMLHttpRequest"	object.

       To load the plugin, use WWW::Scripter's "use_plugin" method, as shown
       in the Synopsis.	Any extra arguments to "use_plugin" will be passed on
       to the JavaScript plugin	(at least for now).

ASYNCHRONY
       The "XMLHttpRequest" object currently does not support asynchronous
       connections. Later this will probably become an option, at least	for
       threaded	perls.

NON-HTTP ADDRESSES
       Since it	uses LWP, URI schemes other than http (e.g., file, ftp)	are
       supported.

INTERFACE
       The XMLHttpRequest interface members supported so far are:

	 Methods:
	 open
	 send
	 abort
	 getAllResponseHeaders
	 getResponseHeader
	 setRequestHeader

	 Attributes:
	 onreadystatechange
	 readyState
	 responseText
	 responseXML
	 status
	 statusText

	 Event-Related Methods:
	 addEventListener
	 removeEventListener
	 dispatchEvent

	 Constants (static properties):
	 UNSENT
	 OPENED
	 HEADERS_RECEIVED
	 LOADING
	 DONE

       "responseBody", "overrideMimeType", "getRequestHeader",
       "removeRequestHeader" and more event attributes are likely to be	added
       in future versions.

PREREQUISITES
       This plugin requires perl 5.8.5 or higher, and the following modules:

       o   WWW::Scripter::Plugin::JavaScript version 0.002 or later

       o   constant::lexical

       o   XML::DOM::Lite

       o   HTML::DOM version 0.013 or later

       o   Encode 2.09 or higher

       o   WWW::Scripter

       o   LWP 5.833 or	higher

       o   URI

BUGS
       If you find any bugs, please report them	to the author by e-mail
       (preferably with	a patch	:-).

       XML::DOM::Lite is quite lenient toward badly-formed XML,	so the
       "responseXML" property returns something	useful even in cases when it
       should be null.

       The SECURITY_ERR, NETWORK_ERR and ABORT_ERR constants are not available
       yet, as I don't know where to put them.

       It does not conform to the spec in every	detail,	since the spec is
       still being written and is different every time I check it.

       None of the additional features in the Level 2 spec are implemented.

       There is	currently no API to signal that	the user has cancelled a
       connection. You can call	the "abort" method, but	that does not have
       exactly the same	result that a user-initiated cancellation is meant to
       have.

       Furthermore, this module	follows	the badly-designed API that is
       unfortunately the standard so I can't do	anything about it.
