Lire::DlfAnalyser - Base interface for all DLF analysers.
use base qw/ Lire::DlfAnalyser /;
This package defines the interface that must be implemented by all DLF Analysers. All the methods defined in this package will throw a 'method not implemented' exception if they are called. Analyser which produce DLF records for an extended schema should probably use the simpler Lire::DlfCategoriser interface.
META INFORMATION METHODS
These methods provides information to the Lire framework about the DLF analysers. The Lire::DlfAnalyser interface extends the Lire::Plugin interface, so they must implement all standard meta-information methods (name(), title(), description()). src_schema() Returns the Dlf schema which is analysed by this analyser. E.g. "www" dst_schema() Returns the Dlf schema which is producted by this analyser. E.g. "www-user_session"
The analyser does its job using the analyse() method. analyse( $process, $config ) The $process parameter contains the Lire::DlfAnalyserProcess object which is controlling the conversion process. The $config parameter contains configuration data that was specified in the AnalysisJob for that converter. To register configuration specification for you DlfAnalyser, you just need to define a configuration specification under the name analyser_name_properties. This should be either a RecordSpec or ObjectSpec.
Lire::DlfAnalyserProcess(3pm), Lire::DlfStore(3pm), Lire::PluginManager(3pm), Lire::DlfCategoriser(3pm).
