DESCRIPTION

A Request class ...

Class Group: Request

The following classes might be a part of the Request Class Group.

  • Class: App::Request

  • Class: App::Request::CGI

Constructor Methods:

new()

The App::Request->new() method is rarely called directly. That is because the current request is usually accessed through the $context object.

    * Signature: $request = App::Request->new($context, $named);
    * Return: $request     App::Request
    * Throws: App::Exception
    * Since:  0.01

    Sample Usage: 

    $request = App::Request->new();

Protected Methods:

The following methods are intended to be called by subclasses of the current class (or environmental, "main" code).

_init()

The _init() method is called from within the standard Request constructor. The _init() method in this class does nothing. It allows subclasses of the Request to customize the behavior of the constructor by overriding the _init() method.

    * Signature: $request->_init()
    * Param:     void
    * Return:    void
    * Throws:    App::Exception
    * Since:     0.01

    Sample Usage: 

    $request->_init();

Public Methods

user()

The user() method returns the username of the authenticated user. The special name, "guest", refers to the unauthenticated (anonymous) user.

    * Signature: $username = $request->user();
    * Param:  void
    * Return: string
    * Throws: <none>
    * Since:  0.01

    Sample Usage: 

    $username = $request->user();

http_method()

Returns the HTTP method used in this request (i.e. "GET" or "POST").

    * Signature: $http_method = $request->http_method();
    * Param:  void
    * Return: string
    * Throws: <none>
    * Since:  0.01

    Sample Usage: 

    $http_method = $request->http_method();

content_type()

Returns the content_type of data submitted in a POST, generally "multipart/form-data" or "application/x-www-form-urlencoded".

    * Signature: $content_type = $request->content_type();
    * Param:  void
    * Return: string
    * Throws: <none>
    * Since:  0.01

    Sample Usage: 

    $content_type = $request->content_type();

get_session_id()

The get_session_id() method returns the session_id in the request.

    * Signature: $session_id = $request->get_session_id();
    * Param:  void
    * Return: $session_id     string
    * Throws: <none>
    * Since:  0.01
