NAME ^

DBICx::TestDatabase::Subclass - a DBICx::TestDatabase you can add your own methods to

SYNOPSIS ^

Your test database subclass:

   package MyApp::TestDatabase
   use base qw(DBICx::TestDatabase::Subclass MyApp::Schema);

   sub foo { 
      my $self = shift;
      return $self->resultset('Foo')->create({ foo => 'bar' });
   }

Later:

   use MyApp::TestDatabase;
   my $schema = MyApp::TestDatabase->connect;
   my $foo_row = $schema->foo; # MyApp::TestDatabase::foo
   my $bars = $schema->resultset('Bar'); # MyApp::Schema::resultset

DESCRIPTION ^

Sometimes DBICx::TestDatabase doesn't give you enough control over the object returned. This module lets you create a custom test database class.

METHODS ^

connect

This method creates the temporary database and returns the connection. If your subclass needs to change the way connect works, do something like this:

    sub connect {
        my ($class) = @_;

        say 'This happens before we create the test database.';
        my $schema = $class->next::method;
        say '$schema is the temporary test database';
       
        return $schema;
    }

SEE ALSO ^

If you want a simple test database based on a DBIC schema, just use DBICx::TestDatabase.
