NAME

       "Tangence::Client" - mixin class for building a "Tangence" client

SYNOPSIS

       This class is a mixin, it cannot be directly constructed

        package Example::Client;
        use base qw( Base::Client Tangence::Client );

        sub connect
        {
           my $self = shift;
           $self->SUPER::connect( @_ );

           $self->tangence_connected;

           wait_for { defined $self->rootobj };
        }

        sub tangence_write
        {
           my $self = shift;
           $self->write( $_[0] );
        }

        sub on_read
        {
           my $self = shift;
           $self->tangence_readfrom( $_[0] );
        }

        package main;

        my $client = Example::Client->new;
        $client->connect( "server.location.here" );

        my $rootobj = $client->rootobj;

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides mixin to implement a "Tangence" client connection. It should be mixed
       in to an object used to represent a single connection to a server. It provides a central
       location in the client to store object proxies, including to the root object and the
       registry, and coordinates passing messages between the server and the object proxies it
       contains.

       This is a subclass of Tangence::Stream which provides implementations of the required
       "handle_request_" methods. A class mixing in "Tangence::Client" must still provide the
       "tangence_write" method required for sending data to the server.

       For an example of a class that uses this mixin, see Net::Async::Tangence::Client.

PROVIDED METHODS

       The following methods are provided by this mixin.

   rootobj
          $rootobj = $client->rootobj

       Returns a Tangence::ObjectProxy to the server's root object

   registry
          $registry = $client->registry

       Returns a Tangence::ObjectProxy to the server's object registry

   tangence_connected
          $client->tangence_connected( %args )

       Once the base connection to the server has been established, this method should be called
       to perform the initial work of requesting the root object and the registry.

       It takes the following named arguments:

       do_init => BOOL
               Ignored. Maintained for compatibility with previous version that allowed this to
               be disabled.

       on_root => CODE
               Optional callback to be invoked once the root object has been returned. It will be
               passed a Tangence::ObjectProxy to the root object.

                $on_root->( $rootobj )

       on_registry => CODE
               Optional callback to be invoked once the registry has been returned. It will be
               passed a Tangence::ObjectProxy to the registry.

                $on_registry->( $registry )

       version_minor_min => INT
               Optional minimum minor version to negotiate with the server. This can be used to
               require a higher minimum version than the client module itself supports, in case
               the application requires features in a newer version than that.

SUBCLASSING METHODS

       These methods are intended for implementation classes to override.

   new_future
          $f = $client->new_future

       Returns a new Future instance for basing asynchronous operations on.
