POE::Component::Server::HTTP: The _signal event is deprecated

ls has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello,

I just try to change some code from HTTP::Daemon to POE with POE::Component::Server::HTTP and get the following warning:

The _signal event is deprecated. Please use sig() to register a signa +l handler at E:\work\projects\cws_poe\cws.pl line 12 POE::Kernel's run() method was never called.
I've searched the documentation comming with POE and the monastir as well as http://poe.perl.org/, but haven't yet found out how I can change this and what can I register as a signal with POE.

Please, could you tell me what I have to do?

Best regards,

ls

The code of the Script is nearly exactly the code from perldoc POE::Component::Server::HTTP:

#! /usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use POE; use POE::Component::Server::HTTP; use HTTP::Status; use vars qw($Port); $Port = 8889; my $httpd = POE::Component::Server::HTTP->new ( Port => $Port, ContentHandler => { '/' => \&MainHandler }, Headers => {Server => 'any server' }, ); POE::Kernel->call($httpd, "shutdown"); sub MainHandler { my ($request, $response) = @_; $response->code(RC_OK); $response->content("Hi, you fetched ". $request->uri); return RC_OK; } # MainHandler

    I'd recommend subscribing to and asking on the POE mailing list - as most POE knowledge seems to reside there

    There's a couple of things wrong here. The main one being that you're not actually starting the kernel (admittedly PoCo::Server::HTTPD's docs are lacking a bit in this respect). What you need to do is create a session and then start the kernel:
    POE::Session->create( inline_states => { _start => \&create_httpd, _stop => \&stop_httpd, }, args => [8080], ); $poe_kernel->run; sub create_httpd { my ($kernel, $heap, $Port) = @_[KERNEL, HEAP, ARG0]; $kernel->alias_set('httpd_parent'); my $httpd = POE::Component::Server::HTTP->new ( Port => $Port, ContentHandler => { '/' => \&MainHandler }, Headers => {Server => 'any server' }, ); $heap->{httpd} = $httpd; } sub stop_httpd { my ($kernel, $heap) = @_[KERNEL, HEAP]; $kernel->call($heap->{httpd}, 'shutdown'); } sub MainHandler { my ($request, $response) = @_; $response->code(RC_OK); $response->content("Hi, you fetched ". $request->uri); return RC_OK; } # MainHandler
    The other thing wrong is a bug in PoCo::Server::HTTP - it uses the deprecated _signal event, but luckily for you it simply sets it to an empty sub, so you can comment that line out (just grep for _signal in the HTTP.pm file in the distro). (Note: I haven't tested the above code, so it might not work. But it should).

    sig() is not defined in the immediate class you used, but defined in POE::Kernel. What you need to do is to first create a POE::Kernel object, say $kernel, then:
    $kernel->sig($signal_name, $state_name);
    Give a try.

    But I do think POE should provide better and more clear documentation, at least say something like "please see POE::Kernel for details about how to use sig()", if they don't want people to reconsider :-) especially when standard Perl distribution itself is getting better.
      This is incredibly misinformed. Do not, as this poster suggests, reconsider using POE.

      It's pretty well accepted that Perl 6 is at least another year away, and for widespread use I would expect it to be 2 or 3 years away (think about all the modules that will probably need porting). That's a long time to wait for a new programming language to be widely usable. I'm not suggesting that Perl 6 isn't going to be chock full of good ideas, but it's not here yet, and until it is a regular day-to-day coder simply can't consider it as an alternative option.

      Secondly, yes Perl 5.8 supports pretty stable threads, but there are still some major issues with them, for example creating a thread under iThreads is several orders of magnitude slower than forking a separate process. For other issues follow the perl5-porters mailing list, or grep the archives for Elizabeth Mattijsen's posts.

      POE however is here, it works, and it does what its supposed to do really really well.

    This is a warning generated by POE::Component::Server::HTTP itself. Unfortunately, it's misattributed to your code.

    Visit line 68 in PoCo::Server::HTTP, and comment out the line that reads:

      _signal => sub {},

    I've already submitted a bug report to the component's author.
