DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader::Base - Base DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader Implementation.


See DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader


This is the base class for the storage-specific DBIx::Class::Schema::* classes, and implements the common functionality between them.


These constructor options are the base options for "loader_opts" in DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader. Available constructor options are:


Try to automatically detect/setup has_a and has_many relationships.


If set to true, each constructive DBIx::Class statement the loader decides to execute will be warn-ed before execution.


Set the name of the schema to load (schema in the sense that your database vendor means it). Does not currently support loading more than one schema name.


Only load tables matching regex. Best specified as a qr// regex.


Exclude tables matching regex. Best specified as a qr// regex.


Overrides the default table name to moniker translation. Can be either a hashref of table keys and moniker values, or a coderef for a translator function taking a single scalar table name argument and returning a scalar moniker. If the hash entry does not exist, or the function returns a false value, the code falls back to default behavior for that table name.

The default behavior is: join '', map ucfirst, split /[\W_]+/, lc $table, which is to say: lowercase everything, split up the table name into chunks anywhere a non-alpha-numeric character occurs, change the case of first letter of each chunk to upper case, and put the chunks back together. Examples:

    Table Name  | Moniker Name
    luser       | Luser
    luser_group | LuserGroup
    luser-opts  | LuserOpts


Just like "moniker_map" above (can be hash/code-ref, falls back to default if hash key does not exist or coderef returns false), but acts as a map for pluralizing relationship names. The default behavior is to utilize "to_PL" in Lingua::EN::Inflect::Number.


As "inflect_plural" above, but for singularizing relationship names. Default behavior is to utilize "to_S" in Lingua::EN::Inflect::Number.


List of additional base classes all of your table classes will use.


List of additional base classes all of your table classes will use that need to be leftmost.


List of additional classes which all of your table classes will use.


List of additional components to be loaded into all of your table classes. A good example would be ResultSetManager.


List of additional ResultSet components to be loaded into your table classes. A good example would be AlwaysRS. Component ResultSetManager will be automatically added to the above components list if this option is set.


Setting this option changes the default fallback for "inflect_plural" to utilize "PL" in Lingua::EN::Inflect, and "inflect_singular" to a no-op. Those choices produce substandard results, but might be necessary to support your existing code if you started developing on a version prior to 0.03 and don't wish to go around updating all your relationship names to the new defaults.

This option will continue to be supported until at least version 0.05xxx, but may dissappear sometime thereafter. It is recommended that you update your code to use the newer-style inflections when you have the time.


This option is designed to be a tool to help you transition from this loader to a manually-defined schema when you decide it's time to do so.

The value of this option is a perl libdir pathname. Within that directory this module will create a baseline manual DBIx::Class::Schema module set, based on what it creates at runtime in memory.

The created schema class will have the same classname as the one on which you are setting this option (and the ResultSource classes will be based on this name as well). Therefore it is wise to note that if you point the dump_directory option of a schema class at the live libdir where that class is currently located, it will overwrite itself with a manual version of itself. This might be a really good or bad thing depending on your situation and perspective.

Normally you wouldn't hard-code this setting in your schema class, as it is meant for one-time manual usage.

See "dump_to_dir" in DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader for examples of the recommended way to access this functionality.


If set to a true value, the dumping code will overwrite existing files. The default is false, which means the dumping code will skip the already existing files.


These will be removed in version 0.04000 !!!


Equivalent to "inflect_plural".


Equivalent to "inflect_plural".

connect_info, dsn, user, password, options

You connect these schemas the same way you would any DBIx::Class::Schema, which is by calling either connect or connection on a schema class or object. These options are only supported via the deprecated load_from_connection interface, which is also being removed in 0.04000.


None of these methods are intended for direct invocation by regular users of DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader. Anything you can find here can also be found via standard DBIx::Class::Schema methods somehow.


Constructor for DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader::Base, used internally by DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader.


Does the actual schema-construction work.


Returns a sorted list of loaded tables, using the original database table names.


Returns a hashref of loaded table to moniker mappings. There will be two entries for each table, the original name and the "normalized" name, in the case that the two are different (such as databases that like uppercase table names, or preserve your original mixed-case definitions, or what-have-you).


Returns a hashref of table to class mappings. In some cases it will contain multiple entries per table for the original and normalized table names, as above in "monikers".
