NAME ^

Rose::DB::Oracle - Oracle driver class for Rose::DB.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Rose::DB;

  Rose::DB->register_db
  (
    domain   => 'development',
    type     => 'main',
    driver   => 'Oracle',
    database => 'dev_db',
    host     => 'localhost',
    username => 'devuser',
    password => 'mysecret',
  );

  Rose::DB->default_domain('development');
  Rose::DB->default_type('main');
  ...

  $db = Rose::DB->new; # $db is really a Rose::DB::Oracle-derived object
  ...

DESCRIPTION ^

Rose::DB blesses objects into a class derived from Rose::DB::Oracle when the driver is "oracle". This mapping of driver names to class names is configurable. See the documentation for Rose::DB's new() and driver_class() methods for more information.

This class cannot be used directly. You must use Rose::DB and let its new() method return an object blessed into the appropriate class for you, according to its driver_class() mappings.

Only the methods that are new or have different behaviors than those in Rose::DB are documented here. See the Rose::DB documentation for the full list of methods.

Oracle 9 or later is required.

Note: This class is a work in progress. Support for Oracle databases is not yet complete. If you would like to help, please contact John Siracusa at siracusa@gmail.com or post to the mailing list.

CLASS METHODS ^

default_post_connect_sql [STATEMENTS]

Get or set the default list of SQL statements that will be run immediately after connecting to the database. STATEMENTS should be a list or reference to an array of SQL statements. Returns a reference to the array of SQL statements in scalar context, or a list of SQL statements in list context.

The default_post_connect_sql statements will be run before any statements set using the post_connect_sql method. The default list contains the following:

    ALTER SESSION SET NLS_DATE_FORMAT = 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'
    ALTER SESSION SET NLS_TIMESTAMP_FORMAT = 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS.FF'
    ALTER SESSION SET NLS_TIMESTAMP_TZ_FORMAT = 'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS.FF TZHTZM'

If one or more NLS_*_FORMAT environment variables are set, the format strings above are replaced by the values that these environment variables have at the time this module is loaded.

OBJECT METHODS ^

post_connect_sql [STATEMENTS]

Get or set the SQL statements that will be run immediately after connecting to the database. STATEMENTS should be a list or reference to an array of SQL statements. Returns a reference to an array (in scalar) or a list of the default_post_connect_sql statements and the post_connect_sql statements. Example:

    $db->post_connect_sql('UPDATE mytable SET num = num + 1');

    print join("\n", $db->post_connect_sql);

    ALTER SESSION SET NLS_DATE_FORMAT='YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'
    ALTER SESSION SET NLS_TIMESTAMP_FORMAT='YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SSxFF'
    UPDATE mytable SET num = num + 1
schema [SCHEMA]

Get or set the database schema name. In Oracle, every user has a corresponding schema. The schema is comprised of all objects that user owns, and has the same name as that user. Therefore, this attribute defaults to the username if it is not set explicitly.

Value Parsing and Formatting

validate_date_keyword STRING

Returns true if STRING is a valid keyword for the PostgreSQL "date" data type. Valid (case-insensitive) date keywords are:

    current_date
    current_timestamp
    localtimestamp
    months_between
    sysdate
    systimestamp

The keywords are case sensitive. Any string that looks like a function call (matches /^\w+\(.*\)$/) is also considered a valid date keyword if keyword_function_calls is true.

validate_timestamp_keyword STRING

Returns true if STRING is a valid keyword for the Oracle "timestamp" data type, false otherwise. Valid timestamp keywords are:

    current_date
    current_timestamp
    localtimestamp
    months_between
    sysdate
    systimestamp

The keywords are case sensitive. Any string that looks like a function call (matches /^\w+\(.*\)$/) is also considered a valid timestamp keyword if keyword_function_calls is true.
