  package XUL::Node::Application::MyApp;
  use base 'XUL::Node::Application';

DESCRIPTION

To create a XUL-Node application, subclass from this class and provide one template method: start(). It will be called when the application is started.

XUL::Node::Server::Session starts applications by calling the class method create($application_name), then creating a closure which calls start() on the application object. The closure is run by the change manager, which collects any changes to nodes so they can be passed to the client.
