NAME ^

Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task - a Perl base class to access Microsoft SQL Server 2000 DTS tasks

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task;

    # $task is an already instantied class using Win32::OLE
    my $custom_task = Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task->new( $task->CustomTaskID, $task->CustomTask );

    # prints the custom task name
    print $custom_task->get_name, "\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task is an base class to be subclassed: one should not use it directly (although it may work). See SEE ALSO for more information about the classed that uses Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task as part of their inheritance.

EXPORT

Nothing.

METHODS

new

Creates a new Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task object. It should be overrided by subclasses, since it defines only general attributes. Expects a DTS Task object. Returns a new Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task object.

One should not invoke this method directly, unless wants to extended the DTS API. See Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Package for more information about how to fetch Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task objects easialy.

get_name

Returns a string with the name of the task.

get_description

Returns a string with the description of the task.

get_type

Returns a string of type of the task.

get_properties

Deprecated. This method is not as useful as it may be seen, since the to_string method does a better job reporting everything about the Task.

to_string

Not implemented. Some tasks fetch their properties in a different manner. Use this method only in subclasses from Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task.

If this method is not override in subclasses it will cause the application to die. Once overrided, it will fetch and return a string with all properties in a nicely manner for printing.
