/**@mainpage Sofia Event API - "nea"
 * 
 * @section nea_meta Module Meta Information
 *
 * Sofia Event API provides an interface to different events used in SIP
 * presence and conferencing. Interface used both in client and server sides
 * is presented in <nea.h>.

 * @section Creating NEA server and events
 *
 * @section nea_server_create Creating NEA server
 *
 * NEA server generates, receives and sends events to subscribed
 * parties. The server is presentity specific, ie. a different server
 * is created for every presentity.
 *
 * First, a server object is created. The object uses the NTA @e agent
 * (#nta_agent_t) that handles incoming and outgoing SIP messages.
 *
 * The example below provides a way to create the NEA server. The
 * function nea_server_create() creates the server. Parameters @e
 * agent, @e root define the transaction engine. Third parameter is
 * the address of the presentity. event_callback is a callback
 * function pointer and is called every time a new user subscribes to
 * an event that does not exist or requests for payload type that
 * doesn't match.
 *
 * @code
 * presence_t *presence_create(su_root_t *root,
 * 			     nta_agent_t *agent,
 * 			     sip_contact_t const *m)
 * {
 *   presentity_t *pr = su_home_clone(p->p_home, sizeof (*pr));
 *   ...
 *   pr->pr_nes = 
 *     nea_server_create(agent, root,
 * 		       m->m_url, 
 * 		       MAX_SUBSCRIBERS,
 * 		       event_callback, pr,
 * 		       SIPTAG_CONTACT(m),
 * 		       SIPTAG_SERVER_STR("Sofia-SIP NEA"),
 * 		       TAG_NULL());
 * ...
 * }
 * @endcode
 * 
 * @section nea_event_create Creating Events
 *
 * Next, events are created. The function nea_event_create () defines
 * an event, its package and content types (a comma separated
 * list). The parameter presence_callback defines the callback
 * function that is called when a someone subscribes to a defined
 * event.
 *
 * @code
 * #define PRESENCE_PACKAGE "presence"
 * #define XPIDF_MIME_TYPE "application/xpidf+xml"
 * #define PIDF_MIME_TYPE "application/cpim-pidf+xml"

 * ne = nea_event_create(pr->pr_nes, presence_callback, ep, 
 * 		       PRESENCE_PACKAGE, NULL,
 * 		       PIDF_MIME_TYPE,
 * 		       PIDF_MIME_TYPE "," XPIDF_MIME_TYPE);
 * @endcode
 *
 * @section nea_server_update Operating with event payloads
 *
 * A new payload can be inserted to a event with the function
 * nea_server_update(). The 4th parameter describes if the updated
 * content is a fake (for unauthorized subscribers). A real payload is
 * inserted (updated) with the 4th parameter being 0. If the event is
 * not updated with the content type @a ct before, a new content type
 * format for the event is created. Otherwise the old payload is
 * replaced with the new one.
 *
 * After the update, subscribers of the event are notified (with SIP
 * NOTIFY) of the changed payload with nea_server_update ().
 * 
 * @code
 * nea_server_update(pr->pr_nes, home, event, 1,
 *		   SIPTAG_CONTENT_TYPE(ct),
 * 		   SIPTAG_PAYLOAD(pl),
 * 		   TAG_END());
 
 * nea_server_notify(pr->pr_nes, event);
 * @endcode
 * 
 * Obtaining the event's payload and removing it is presented in the
 * example below. The event is defined as a part of the @a package_t
 * structure. Function nea_payloads_get() is used to return a payload
 * (in this case content type being predefined
 * "application/cpim-pidf+xml"). The real and fake payloads are stored
 * in the structure #nea_payloads_t. Finally, the payload is removed
 * with nea_payload_remove().
 *
 * @code
 * int remove_old_payload(package_t *ep)
 * {
 *   nea_payloads_t *np;
 *   sip_content_type_t *ct;
 *   sip_payload_t *real;
 *   sip_payload_t *fake;

 *   event = ep->ep_event;

 *   np = nea_payloads_get(event, PIDF_MIME_TYPE);
 *   ct = nea_content_type_get(np);
 *   real = nea_payload_get(np);
 *   fake = nea_fake_get(np);
 *   nea_payload_remove(ep->ep_home, np);

 *   return 0;
 * }
 * @endcode
