NAME ^

DBIx::ObjectMapper - An implementation of the Data Mapper pattern (object-relational mapper).

SYNOPSIS ^

Create a engine and a mapper object.

 use DBIx::ObjectMapper;
 use DBIx::ObjectMapper::Engine::DBI;

 my $engine = DBIx::ObjectMapper::Engine::DBI->new({
    dsn => 'dbi:SQLite:',
    username => undef,
    password => undef,
 });

 my $mapper = DBIx::ObjectMapper->new( engine => $engine );

Create a ordinary perl class.

 package My::User;
 use base qw(Class::Accessor::Fast);
 __PACKAGE__->mk_accessors(qw(id name));

 1;

Get/Define metadata of the table.

 my $user_meta = $mapper->metadata->table( 'user' => 'autoload' );

 # or

 use DBIx::ObjectMapper::Metadata::Sugar qw(:all);
 my $user_meta = $mapper->metadata->table(
     'user' => [
         Col( id => Int(), PrimaryKey ),
         Col( name => String(128), NotNull ),
     ]
 );

Map the table metadata to the ordinary class.

 $mapper->maps( $user_meta => 'My::User' );

Create session. And add My::User object to session object.

 my $session = $mapper->begin_session;
 my $user = My::User->new({ id => 1, name => 'name1' });
 $session->add($user);

When the $session is destroyed, the session object send a insert query to the database.

Get a My::User Object.

 my $session = $mapper->begin_session;
 my $user = $session->get( 'My::User' => 1 );
 $user->id;
 $user->name;
