Data - The XML Business::Payroll Data Module.
use Business::Payroll::XML::Data; my $obj = Business::Payroll::XML::Data->new(validCountries => \%validCountries, periodNames => \%periodNames);
Business::Payroll::XML::Data will contain the parsed XML file. It provides a method to validate that it is complete and also a method to generate a valid XML file from the data stored in the data hash.
scalar new(validCountries, periodNames) Creates a new instance of the Business::Payroll::XML::Data object. array isValid(void) Determines if the data structure is complete and usable for generating an XML file from. Returns an array. The first index is boolean (1 or 0 to indicate if the object is valid or not). The second index is an array of error messages that were generated based upon the errors found. string generateXML(void) Creates an XML file based upon the info stored in the Business::Payroll::XML::Data object. It first calls isValid() to make sure this is possible. If not then we die with an informative error message.
version - version of the XML file parsed dataFile - the name of the file parsed or the string of XML date - the date the Payroll was generated on period - the period of time the payroll is for (weekly, bimonthly, etc.) startPeriod - beginning date of the payroll period. endPeriod - ending date of the payroll period. genSysId - the id used by the generating system to identify this payroll persons - the array of person data structures NOTE: All data fields are accessible by specifying the object and pointing to the data member to be modified on the left-hand side of the assignment. Ex. $obj->variable($newValue); or $value = $obj->variable;
