Object Hierarchy



This class manages incoming requests (including post-data), and outgoing responses (by passing a supplied GskStream as HTTP content).


GskHttpServerTrap ()

gboolean    (*GskHttpServerTrap)            (GskHttpServer *server,
                                             gpointer data);

Function which will be called when the server has a request ready.

server : the server which has the request available.
data : as passed in to gsk_http_server_trap().
Returns : whether to keep the trap active.


typedef struct {
  GskStreamClass stream_class;
  void         (*set_poll_request) (GskHttpServer *server,
				    gboolean       do_poll);
  void         (*shutdown_request) (GskHttpServer *server);
} GskHttpServerClass;

Virtual functions which are implemented by an HTTP server.

GskStreamClass stream_class; the base server class.
set_poll_request () function to indicate whether to notify on the HTTP trap.
shutdown_request () function to call to stop accepting requests.


typedef struct _GskHttpServer GskHttpServer;

Stream which is the server end of an HTTP connection.

This has a trap which is triggered when new requests are available. This HTTP server does not define any behavior-- the user is responsible for calling gsk_http_server_respond() to handle the request.


#define GSK_HTTP_SERVER_HOOK(client)	(&GSK_HTTP_SERVER (client)->has_request_hook)

Get the hook which is triggered on HTTP request availability.

client : the client to get the hook from.


#define     gsk_http_server_trap(server,func,shutdown,data,destroy)

Register a function which will get called as long as a request is available. The request should be dequeued with gsk_http_server_get_request().

server : the server to watch.
func : the function to call if a request is available.
shutdown : the function to call if no further requests are going to be available.
data : data to pass to func and shutdown.
destroy : the function to call when the trap is removed or destroyed.


#define     gsk_http_server_untrap(server)

Unregister the function which was to be called whenever a request was available.

This has the same effect as returning FALSE from the function registered with gsk_http_server_trap().

server : the server to stop watching.

gsk_http_server_new ()

GskHttpServer* gsk_http_server_new          (void);

Allocate a new HTTP server protocol processor. (Note that generally you will need to connect it to an accepted socket)

Returns : the newly allocated server.

gsk_http_server_get_request ()

gboolean    gsk_http_server_get_request     (GskHttpServer *server,
                                             GskHttpRequest **request_out,
                                             GskStream **post_data_out);

Grab a client request if available. Use gsk_http_server_trap() to get notification when a request is available.

The corresponding POST data stream must be retrieved at the same time.

server : the HTTP server to grab the request from.
request_out : location to store a reference to the HTTP request.
post_data_out : location to store a reference to the HTTP request's POST data, or NULL will be stored if this is not a POST-type request.
Returns : whether a request was successfully dequeued.

gsk_http_server_respond ()

void        gsk_http_server_respond         (GskHttpServer *server,
                                             GskHttpRequest *request,
                                             GskHttpResponse *response,
                                             GskStream *content);

Give a response to a client's request.

server : the server to write the response to.
request : the request obtained with gsk_http_server_get_request().
response : the response constructed to this request.
content : content data if appropriate to this request.
