NAME

Test::Reporter::Transport::Socket - Simple socket transport for Test::Reporter

VERSION

version 0.28

SYNOPSIS

    my $report = Test::Reporter->new(
        transport => 'Socket',
        transport_args => [
          host     => 'metabase.relay.example.com',
          port     => 58008,
        ],
    );

    # use space-separated in a CPAN::Reporter config.ini
    transport = Socket host metabase.relay.example.com ...

DESCRIPTION

This is a Test::Reporter::Transport that sends test report data serialised over a TCP socket.

The idea is to keep dependencies in the tester perl to a bear minimum and offload the bulk of submission to a Metabase instance to a relay.

USAGE

See Test::Reporter and Test::Reporter::Transport for general usage information.

Transport arguments

Unlike most other Transport classes, this class requires transport arguments to be provided as key-value pairs:

    my $report = Test::Reporter->new(
        transport => 'Socket',
        transport_args => [
          host     => 'metabase.relay.example.com',
          port     => 58008,
        ],
    );

Arguments include:

host (required)

The name or IP address of a host where we want to send our serialised data.

This may also be an arrayref of the above. A connection will be attempted to each item in turn until a successful connection is made.

port

The TCP port on the above host to send our serialised data.

METHODS

These methods are only for internal use by Test::Reporter.

new

    my $sender = Test::Reporter::Transport::Socket->new( %params );

The new method is the object constructor.

send

    $sender->send( $report );

The send method transmits the report.
