Net::Jabber::Query::AutoUpdate - Jabber IQ AutoUpdate Module


  Net::Jabber::Query::AutoUpdate is a companion to the Net::Jabber::Query
  module.  It provides the user a simple interface to set and retrieve
  all parts of a Jabber AutoUpdate query.


  To initialize the Query with a Jabber <iq/> and then access the autoupdate
  query you must pass it the XML::Parser Tree array from the 
  Net::Jabber::Client module.  In the callback function for the iq:

    use Net::Jabber;

    sub iqCB {
      my $iq = new Net::Jabber::IQ(@_);
      my $autoupdate = $iq->GetQuery();

  You now have access to all of the retrieval functions available.

  To create a new Query autoupdate to send to the server:

    use Net::Jabber;

    $client = new Net::Jabber::Client();

    $iq = new Net::Jabber::IQ();
    $autoupdate = $iq->NewQuery("jabber:iq:autoupdate");


  Using $autoupdate you can call the creation functions below to populate the 
  tag before sending it.

  For more information about the array format being passed to the CallBack
  please read the Net::Jabber::Client documentation.

Retrieval functions

    $release     = $autoupdate->GetRelease();
    $release     = $autoupdate->GetRelease("beta");
    $release     = $autoupdate->GetRelease("dev");

    @releaseTree = $autoupdate->GetReleaseTree();
    @releaseTree = $autoupdate->GetReleaseTree("beta");
    @releaseTree = $autoupdate->GetReleaseTree("dev");

Creation functions

    $release = $autoupdate->AddRelease();
    $release = $autoupdate->AddRelease(type=>"beta",


Retrieval functions

  GetRelease(string) - returns a Net::Jabber::Query::AutoUpdate::Release
                       object that contains the data for that release.
                       The string determines which release is returned:
                         release - returns the latest stable release 
                         beta    - returns the latest beta release
                         dev     - returns the latest dev release in CVS
                       If string is blank or undefined, then the "release"
                       version is returned.

  GetReleaseTree(string) - returns an XML::Parser tree that contains the
                           release specified in string.  If string is
                           empty or undefined then it defaults to 

Creation functions

  AddRelease(type=>string, - created a new Release object and populates
             hash)           it with the hash.  The has is passed to the
                             SetRelease function, check the module for
                             valid settings.  The valid setting for type

                               release - to indicate the latest stable
                               beta    - to indicate the latest beta
                               dev     - to indicate the latest dev release 
                                         in CVS

                             If type is blank or undefined, then "release"
                             is assumed.
