POE::Component - a POE servlet class
Varies from component to component.
POE components are event-driven modules, many of which act as little daemons that supply services to the programs they're parts of. In general, they talk with other sessions by receiving and posting events, but this is not a formal convention. A component's interface design should prefer to make sense; for example, an SMTP client should have a method to just "send a message" rather than (or in addition to) several others that deal with the intricacies of the SMTP protocol.
The POE::Component namespace was started as place for contributors to publish their POE-based modules without requiring coordination with the main POE distribution.
The SEE ALSO section in POE contains a table of contents covering the entire POE distribution.
Document the customary (but not mandatory!) process of creating and publishing a component.
Each component is written and copyrighted by its author.
