AnyEvent::XMPP::Component - "XML" stream that implements the XEP-0114


   use AnyEvent::XMPP::Component;
   my $con = AnyEvent::XMPP::Component->new (
                domain => ''
                host   => '',
                port   => 5347,
                secret => 'insecurepasswordforthehackers'
   $con->reg_cb (session_ready => sub { ... });


This module represents a XMPP connection to a server that authenticates as component.

This module is a subclass of "AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection" and inherits all methods. For example "reg_cb" and the stanza sending routines.

For additional events that can be registered to look below in the EVENTS section.

Please note that for component several functionality in AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection might have no effect or not the desired effect. Basically you should use the AnyEvent::XMPP::Component as component and only handle events the handle with incoming data. And only use functions that send stanzas.

No effect has the event "stream_pre_authentication" and the "authenticate" method of AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection, because those handle the usual SASL or iq-auth authentication. "Jabber" components have a completly different authentication mechanism.

Also note that the support for some XEPs in AnyEvent::XMPP::Ext is just thought for client side usage, if you miss any functionaly don't hesitate to ask the author or send him a patch! (See AnyEvent::XMPP for contact information).


This is the constructor. It takes the same arguments as the constructor of AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection along with a few others:

NOTE: Please note that some arguments that AnyEvent::XMPP::Connection usually takes have no effect when using this class. (That would be the 'username', 'password', 'resource' and 'jid' arguments for example.)

$secret is the secret that will be used for authentication with the server.


These additional events can be registered on with "reg_cb":

NOTE: The event "stream_pre_authentication" should _not_ be handled and just ignored. Don't attach callbacks to it!

This event indicates that the component has connected successfully and can now be used to transmit stanzas.
