NAME

Namespace - a container for namespaces

DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this module is to create OO interface to namespace registration and therefore add the layer of abstraction for any namespace related operation. All perfSONAR-PS classes should work with the instance of this class and avoid using explicit namespace declaration.

SYNOPSIS

    use perfSONAR_PS::XML::Namespace; 
    # create Namespace object with default URIs
    $ns = perfSONAR_PS::XML::Namespace->new();
    
    # overwrite  Namespace object with  custom URIs
    $nss =  {'pinger' => 'http://newpinger/namespace/'};
    $ns = perfSONAR_PS::XML::Namespace->new(-hash => $nss);
    
    # overwrite only specific Namespace   with  custom URI 
    
    $ns = perfSONAR_PS::XML::Namespace->new(-pinger =>   'http://newpinger/namespace/');
      
    $pinger_uri = $ns->getNsByKey('pinger'); ## get URI by key
    $ns->setNsByKey('pinger' =>  'http://newpinger/namespace/'); ## set URI by key
    
 

API

There are many get/set methods

new(-NS => \%nss)

Creates a new object, pass hash ref as collection of namespaces or new(-pinger => http://ggf.org/ns/nmwg/tools/pinger/2.0/", 'nmwgr' => "http://ggf.org/ns/nmwg/result/2.0/")

getNsByKey()

Returns namespace string by id of the namespace, where kyes are: 'nmwg', 'nmwgr 'nmwgt' ( aliased as 'topo' too),'nmwgtopo3' 'nmtl3','nmtl4', 'nmtm' 'select', 'average' 'traceroute','snmp', 'ping', 'owamp', 'netutil', 'bwctl','pinger', 'iperf

 Might be utized as Class method:
   my $URI =   Namespace::getNsByKey($key);  

setNsByKey('pinger' => 'http://newpinger/namespace/' )

Sets namespace URI string by id of the namespace or defnies the new one
