NAME ^

Handel::Manual::Schema - An overview of the default database schema.

DESCRIPTION ^

The default schemas in Handel are really just DBIx::Class::Schema classes with some syntactic sugar added to connect to get configuration information from Handel::ConfigReader. The whole point of using DBIx::Class schemas is that fact that you can reuse any existing schemas you have lying around for other purposes. DBIx::Class offers an amazing amount of flexibility that allows Handel to mix and match most schemas for use inside of Handel, even allowing for the changing of fields, components, and other things on the fly.

An attempt is made to keep the default Handel schema restricted to only those fields that were the most common, or necessary for almost every cart/order process.

SCHEMA CLASSES ^

Handel::Cart::Schema
