Net::DBus::Service - Provide a service to the bus for clients to use


  package main;

  use Net::DBus;

  # Attach to the bus
  my $bus = Net::DBus->find;

  # Acquire a service 'org.demo.Hello'

This module represents a service which is exported to the message bus. Once a service has been exported, it is possible to create and export objects to the bus.


my $service = Net::DBus::Service->new($bus, $name);

Create a new service, attaching to the bus provided in the $bus parameter, which should be an instance of the Net::DBus object. The $name parameter is the qualified service name. It is not usually necessary to use this constructor, since services can be created via the export_service method on the Net::DBus object.

When $name is not specified or is undef then returned handle to the service is identified only by the unique name of client's connection to the bus.

my $bus = $service->get_bus;

Retrieves the Net::DBus object to which this service is attached.

my $name = $service->get_service_name

Retrieves the qualified name by which this service is known on the bus.
