Catalyst::Helper::Model::DBIC::Schema - Helper for DBIC Schema Models


  script/ model CatalystModelName DBIC::Schema MyApp::SchemaClass [ create=dynamic | create=static ] [ connect_info arguments ]


Helper for the DBIC Schema Models.


CatalystModelName is the short name for the Catalyst Model class being generated (i.e. callable with $c->model('CatalystModelName')).

MyApp::SchemaClass is the fully qualified classname of your Schema, which might or might not yet exist. Note that you should have a good reason to create this under a new global namespace, otherwise use an existing top level namespace for your schema class.

create=dynamic instructs this Helper to generate the named Schema class for you, basing it on DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader (which means the table information will always be dynamically loaded at runtime from the database).

create=static instructs this Helper to generate the named Schema class for you, using DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader in "one shot" mode to create a standard, manually-defined DBIx::Class::Schema setup, based on what the Loader sees in your database at this moment. A Schema/Model pair generated this way will not require DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader at runtime, and will not automatically adapt itself to changes in your database structure. You can edit the generated classes by hand to refine them.

connect_info arguments are the same as what DBIx::Class::Schema::connect expects, and are storage_type-specific. For DBI-based storage, these arguments are the dsn, username, password, and connect options, respectively. These are optional for existing Schemas, but required if you use either of the create= options.

Use of either of the create= options requires DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader.


  # Use DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader to create a static DBIx::Class::Schema,
  #  and a Model which references it:
  script/ model CatalystModelName DBIC::Schema MyApp::SchemaClass create=static dbi:mysql:foodb myuname mypass

  # Create a dynamic DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader-based Schema,
  #  and a Model which references it:
  script/ model CatalystModelName DBIC::Schema MyApp::SchemaClass create=dynamic dbi:mysql:foodb myuname mypass

  # Reference an existing Schema of any kind, and provide some connection information for ->config:
  script/ model CatalystModelName DBIC::Schema MyApp::SchemaClass dbi:mysql:foodb myuname mypass

  # Same, but don't supply connect information yet (you'll need to do this
  #  in your app config, or [not recommended] in the schema itself).
  script/ model ModelName DBIC::Schema My::SchemaClass
