NAME ^

Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed - full-text search for RDBO classes

SYNOPSIS ^

 package MyRDBO;
 use strict;
 use base qw( Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed );
 
 sub index_eligible { 1 }
 
 1;

DESCRIPTION ^

Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed is a base class like Rose::DB::Object, with the added feature that your objects are added to a full-text index every time they are saved.

The idea is that you can provide full-text search for your database simply by subclassing Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed instead of Rose::DB::Object directly.

METHODS ^

Only new or overridden method are documented here.

init_index_eligible

Boolean indicating whether this class should be indexed on insert, update and delete.

The default is false (off), which means that even though you may subclass Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed, you must still turn the flag on by setting index_eligible() to true in the specific subclasses you want included in the index. This allows you to have a common base class that inherits from Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed and then selectively index various subclasses of your common base class.

init_indexer_class

Returns the name of the indexer class. The default is 'Rose::DBx::Object::Indexed::Indexer'.

init_indexer( args )

Returns a new instance of indexer_class(). args are passed through to the indexer_class new() method.

insert

Calls through to next::method and then indexes the object if index_eligible() is true.

update

Calls through to next::method and then indexes the object if index_eligible() is true.

delete

Calls through to next::method and then indexes the object if index_eligible() is true.

write_index( mode )

Passes the object ($self) on to the indexer method mode. This method is called internally by insert(), update() and delete().
