       UR::Service::JsonRpcServer - A self-contained JSON-RPC server for UR namespaces


           use lib '/path/to/your/moduletree';
           use YourNamespace;

           my $rpc = UR::Service::JsonRpcServer->create(host => 'localhost',
                                                        port => '8080',
                                                        api_root => 'URapi',
                                                        docroot => '/html/pages/path',


       This is a class containing an implementation of a JSON-RPC server to respond to requests
       involving UR-based namespaces and their objects.  It uses Net::HTTPServer as the web
       server back-end library.

       Incoming requests are divided into two major categories:

           This is the URL for a call to a class metnod on "Namespace::Class"

           This is the URL for a method call on an object of class Namespace::Class with the
           given id


       The constructor takes the following named parameters:

           The hostname to listen on.  This can be an ip address, host name, or undef.  The
           default value is ''.  This argument is passed along verbatim to the
           Net::HTTPServer constructor.

           The TCP port to listen on.  The default value is 8080.  This argument is passed along
           verbatim to the Net::HTTPServer constructor.

           The root path that the http server will listen for requests on.  The constructor
           registers two paths with the Net::HTTPServer with RegisterRegex() for
           /"api_root"/class/* and /"api_root"/obj/* to respond to class and instance metod

       All other arguments are passed along to the Net::HTTPServer constructor.


           A wrapper to the Net::HTTPServer Process() method.  With no arguments, this call will
           block forever from the perspective of the caller, and process all http requests coming
           in.  You can optionally pass in a timeout value in seconds, and it will respond to
           requests for the given number of seconds before returning.

Client Side

       There are (or will be) client-side code in both Perl and Javascript.  The Perl code is
       (will be) implemented as a UR::Context layer that will return light-weight object
       instances containing only class info and IDs.  All method calls will be serialized and
       sent over the wire for the server process to execute them.

       The Javascript interface is defined in the file urinterface.js.  An example:

           var UR = new URInterface('http://localhost:8080/URApi/');  // Connect to the server
           var FooThingy = UR.get_class('Foo::Thingy');  // Get the class object for Foo::Thingy
           var thingy = FooThingy.get(1234);  // Retrieve an instance with ID 1234
           var result ='method_name', 1, 2, 3);  // Call $thingy->method_name(1,2,3) on the server
