[EP-tech] Re: Adding a custom PerlResponseHandler


Using EPrints 3.3, you can hang the code off of an EP_TRIGGER_URL_REWRITE trigger (in the config for a specific archive). This also has the advantage that you aren't modifying the EPrints code.

Otherwise, just test for an archive specific value in the Rewrite script, for example, a config parameter that is only set in one archive.

I'm trying to work out the best way to add a custom handler for a URL to a specific archive within eprints.

I can either set something like this in the vhost (and add '/foo/' to $c->{rewrite_exceptions} ):
<Location "/foo/handler">
    SetHandler perl-script
    PerlResponseHandler Foo::FooHandler

 - OR -
I could edit ~/perl_lib/EPrints/Apache/Rewrite.pm, adding something like:
if ( $uri =~ m! ^$urlpath/foo !x )
  $r->handler( 'perl-script' );
  $r->set_handlers( PerlResponseHandler => [ 'Foo::FooHandler' ] );
  return OK;

BUT I wouldn't /really/ want to do that, as it would affect all archives, not just the one I want it to.

So, what is the *most* sensible way to do this, making it apply to only one archive? Am I missing some magic that will help me?
