NAME

Class::DBI::Plugin::AggregateFunction - aggregate function for Class::DBI

SYNOPSYS

  package MyData::CD;
  use base qw/Class::DBI/;
  use Class::DBI::Plugin::AggregateFunction;
  __PACKAGE__->mk_aggregate_function('sum');
  __PACKAGE__->mk_aggregate_function( max => 'maximum');
  
  package main;
  # SELECT MAX(price) FROM __TABLE__
  $max = MyData::CD->maximum( 'price' );
  
  # SELECT SUM(price) FROM __TABLE__ WHERE artist = 'foo'
  $sum = MyData::CD->sum( 'price', artist => 'foo', );
  $sum = MyData::CD->sum( 'price', {
        price => {'>=', 1000},
  });

DESCRIPTION

This module is for using an aggregate function easily by Class::DBI.

HOW TO USE

Make Metod of Aggregate Function

The aggregate function is added by using the mk_aggregate_function method.

The 1st argument is an aggregate function used by SQL.

The 2nd argument is a method name. When it is omitted, the aggregate function becomes a method name.

  __PACKAGE__->mk_aggregate_function( 'max' );

or

  __PACKAGE__->mk_aggregate_function( 'max' => 'maximum' );

Use Metod of Aggregate Function

The 1st argument of the aggregate function method is the target column name.

  $max_price = MyData::CD->maximum( 'price' );

It is the same as the search_where method of Class::DBI::AbstractSearch after the 2nd argument.

  # SELECT SUM(price) FROM __TABLE__ WHERE artist = 'foo'
  $total_price = MyData::CD->sum( 'price',
        'artist' => 'foo',
  );

or

  # SELECT SUM(price) FROM __TABLE__ WHERE price >= 1000
  $total_price = MyData::CD->sum( 'price', {
        'price' => {'>=', 1000},
  });
