Catalyst::Model::Proxy - Proxy Model Class

SYNOPSIS

  # a sample use with C<Catalyst::Model::DBI::SQL::Library>

  # lib/MyApp/Model/DBI/SQL/Library/MyDB.pm
  package MyApp::Model::DBI::SQL::Library::MyDB;

  use base 'Catalyst::Model::DBI::SQL::Library';

  __PACKAGE__->config(
    dsn           => 'dbi:Pg:dbname=myapp',
    password      => '',
    user          => 'postgres',
    options       => { AutoCommit => 1 },
  );

  1;

  # lib/MyApp/Model/Other.pm    
  package MyApp::Model::Other;

  use base 'Catalyst::Model::Proxy';

  __PACKAGE__->config(
    target_class => 'DBI::SQL::Library::MyDB',
    subroutines => [ qw ( dbh load ) ] 
  );

  # get access to shared resources via proxy mechanism
  sub something {
    my $self = shift;
    my $sql = $self->load('something.sql'); #located under root/sql
    my $query = $sql->retr ( 'query' ); 
    my $dbh = $self->dbh;
    # ... do some stuff with $dbh
    $dbh->do ( $query );
  }

  # back in the controller

  # lib/MyApp/Controller/Other.pm
  package MyApp::Controller::Other;

  use base 'Catalyst::Controller';      

  my $model = $c->model('Other');
  $model->something;
        

DESCRIPTION

This is the Catalyst Model Class called Catalyst::Model::Proxy that implements Proxy Design Pattern. It enables you to make calls to target classes/subroutines via proxy mechanism. This means reduced memory footprint because any operations performed on the proxies are forwarded to the original complex ( target_class ) object. The target class model is also cached for increased performance. For more information on the proxy design pattern please refer yourself to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_design_pattern
