NAME ^

SPOPS::Tool::CreateOnly - Make a particular object create-only -- it cannot be updated

SYNOPSIS ^

 # Load information with create-only rule

 my $spops = {
    class               => 'This::Class',
    isa                 => [ 'SPOPS::DBI' ],
    field               => [ 'email', 'language', 'country' ],
    id_field            => 'email',
    base_table          => 'test_table',
    rules_from          => [ 'SPOPS::Tool::CreateOnly' ],
 };
 SPOPS::Initialize->process({ config => { test => $spops } });

 # Fetch an object and try to modify it...
 my $object = This::Class->fetch( 'prez@whitehouse.gov' );
 $object->{country} = "Time/Warnerland";

 # Trying to save the object throws an error:
 # "Objects in [This::Class] can only be inserted, not updated. No changes made"
 eval { $object->save };
 if ( $@ ) { print $@ }

 # Instantiate a new object and try to save it...
 my $new_object = This::Class->new({ email    => 'foo@bar.com',
                                     language => 'lv',
                                     country  => 'Freedonia' });
 eval { $new_object->save() }; # ...works as normal, object is saved. Hooray!

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a simple rule to ensure that calls to save() on an already-saved object do nothing. Calling save() on a new (unsaved) object works as normal. Thus, you have create-only objects.

METHODS ^

behavior_factory()

Installs the behavior during the class generation process.

generate_persistence_methods()

Generates a save() method that issues a warning and a no-op when called on a saved object.

BUGS ^

None known.

TO DO ^

Nothing known.
