CatalystX::CRUD - CRUD framework for Catalyst applications
This document is an overview of the CatalystX::CRUD framework and API.
CatalystX::CRUD provides a simple and generic API for Catalyst CRUD applications. CatalystX::CRUD is agnostic with regard to data model and data input, instead providing a common API that different projects can implement for greater compatability with one another.
The project was born out of a desire to make Rose::HTML::Objects easy to use with Rose::DB::Object and DBIx::Class ORMs, using the Catalyst::Controller::Rose project. However, any ORM could implement the CatalystX::CRUD::Model API, and any form management project could use the resulting CatalystX::CRUD::Model subclass.
This class provides some basic methods that Model and Object subclasses inherit.
Returns true if context error() method has any errors set or if the error value in stash() is set. Otherwise returns false (no errors).
Throws exception using Carp::croak (confess() if CATALYST_DEBUG env var is set). Override to manage errors in some other way.
NOTE that if in your subclass throw_error() is not fatal and instead returns a false a value, methods that call it will, be default, continue processing instead of returning. See fetch() for an example.
