Apache::App::Mercury::Controller - Example Controller class
This is simply a skeleton class which illustrates how a controller should interact with Apache::App::Mercury. Please look at the code to see how it should contruct and initialize an Apache::App::Mercury object, run its main content handler, and then cleanup non-persistent instance variables on completion. It does not illustrate object persistence; not for difficulty reasons, simply for lack of time. I highly recommend Apache::Session.
The below instance variables and accessors are required in your controller class for Apache::App::Mercury to operate properly.
A CGI query object for the current http request.
An Apache->request object for the current http request.
Set or get a page-specific informational message. The controller should display this message in some prominent location on the resulting HTML page.
Set or get the HTML page title.
Set or get the page body content.
Return the current unixtime, as returned by the Perl time() function. This accessor is used for time synchronization throughout the application, so your controller can keep a single time for each http request.
Set or get a page-specific location mark, for logging purposes.
