GUPnPServiceIntrospection

GUPnPServiceIntrospection — Service introspection class.

Properties

Description

The GUPnPServiceIntrospection class provides methods for service introspection based on information contained in its service description document (SCPD). There is no constructor provided for this class, please use gupnp_service_info_get_introspection or gupnp_service_info_get_introspection_async to create an GUPnPServiceIntrospection object for a specific service.

Note that all the introspection information is retreived from the service description document (SCPD) provided by the service and hence can not be guaranteed to be complete. A UPnP service is required to provide an SCPD but unfortunately, many services either do not provide this document or the document does not provide any or all of the introspection information.

This class exposes internals of the UPnP protocol and should not need to be used for regular device or control point development.
