NAME ^

SPOPS::DBI::SQLite -- SQLite-specific code for DBI collections

SYNOPSIS ^

 myobject => {
   isa             => [ qw( SPOPS::DBI::SQLite SPOPS::DBI ) ],
   increment_field => 1,
   id_field        => 'id',
   no_insert       => [ 'id' ],
 };

DESCRIPTION ^

This just implements some SQLite-specific routines so we can abstract them out.

One of these items is to auto-generate keys. SQLite supports auto-generated keys in one instance only -- when you specify the first column as an integer field (not int, for some reason SQLite is sensitive to this) and as the primary key. For the value to be generated, you should not insert a value for it.

So to use auto-generated keys, just define your table:

 CREATE TABLE my_table (
   id integer not null primary key,
   ...
 )

or

 CREATE TABLE my_table (
   id integer not null,
   ...
   primary key ( id )
 )

And tell SPOPS you are using an auto-increment field:

 myobject => {
   isa             => [ qw( SPOPS::DBI::SQLite SPOPS::DBI ) ],
   increment_field => 1,
   id_field        => 'id',
   no_insert       => [ 'id' ],
 };

NOTE: Since SQLite is typeless, we assume for quoting purposes that everything is a SQL_VARCHAR type of field, overriding db_discover_types from SPOPS::SQLInterface with our own version.
