DESCRIPTIONEPP is the Extensible Provisioning Protocol. EPP (defined in RFC 4930) is an application layer client-server protocol for the provisioning and management of objects stored in a shared central repository. Specified in XML, the protocol defines generic object management operations and an extensible framework that maps protocol operations to objects. As of writing, its only well-developed application is the provisioning of Internet domain names, hosts, and related contact details.
Net::EPP::Frame::ObjectSpec is a simple module designed to provide easy access to metadata for the object types defined in the EPP specification.
my @spec = Net::EPP::Frame::ObjectSpec->spec($type);
This function returns an array containing metadata for the given object type. If no metadata is registered then the function returns undef.
The array contains three members:
@spec = ( $type, $xmlns, $schemaLocation, );
$type is the same as the supplied argument, and the other two members correspond to the XML attributes used to specify the object in an EPP "<command>" or "<response>" frame.
The objects currently registered are:
- "domain", for domain names.
- "host", for DNS server hosts.
- "contact", for contact objects.
- "secDNS", for DNSSEC information.
Note that secDNS is an extension to the domain object rather than an object in its own right.
