Net::Jabber::Component - Jabber Component Library


  Net::Jabber::Component is a module that provides a developer easy access
  to developing server components in the Jabber Instant Messaging protocol.


  Component.pm seeks to provide enough high level APIs and automation of 
  the low level APIs that writing a Jabber Component in Perl is trivial.
  For those that wish to work with the low level you can do that too, 
  but those functions are covered in the documentation for each module.

  Net::Jabber::Component provides functions to connect to a Jabber server,
  login, send and receive messages, set personal information, create
  a new user account, manage the roster, and disconnect.  You can use
  all or none of the functions, there is no requirement.

  For more information on how the details for how Net::Jabber is written
  please see the help for Net::Jabber itself.

  For a full list of high level functions available please see 

Basic Functions

    use Net::Jabber;

    $Con = new Net::Jabber::Component();


    if ($Con->Connected()) {
      print "We are connected to the server...\n";

    # For the list of available function see Net::Jabber::Protocol.



Basic Functions

    new(debuglevel=>0|1|2, - creates the Component object.  debugfile
        debugfile=>string,   should be set to the path for the debug
        debugtime=>0|1)      log to be written.  If set to "stdout" 
                             then the debug will go there.  debuglevel 
                             controls the amount of debug.  For more
                             information about the valid setting for
                             debuglevel, debugfile, and debugtime see 

    Connect(hostname=>string,      - opens a connection to the server
            port=>integer,           listedt in the hostname value,
            secret=>string,          on the port listed.  The defaults
            componentname=>string)   for the two are localhost and 5222.
                                     The secret is the password needed
                                     to attach the hostname, and the
                                     componentname is the name that
                                     server and clients will know the
                                     component by.

    Disconnect() - closes the connection to the server.

    Connected() - returns 1 if the Component is connected to the server,
                  and 0 if not.
