Net::DBus::Annotation - annotations for changing behaviour of APIs
use Net::DBus::Annotation qw(:call);
my $object = $service->get_object("/org/example/systemMonitor");
# Block until processes are listed
my $processes = $object->list_processes("someuser");
# Just throw away list of processes, pretty pointless
# in this example, but useful if the method doesn't have
# a return value
# List processes & get on with other work until
# the list is returned.
my $asyncreply = $object->list_processes(dbus_call_async, "someuser");
... some time later...
my $processes = $asyncreply->get_data;
This module provides a number of annotations which will be useful
when dealing with the DBus APIs. There are annotations for switching
remote calls between sync, async and no-reply mode. More annotations
may be added over time.
Requests that a method call be performed synchronously, waiting
for the reply or error return to be received before continuing.
Requests that a method call be performed a-synchronously, returning
a pending call object, which will collect the reply when it eventually
Requests that a method call be performed a-synchronously, discarding
any possible reply or error message.
