NAME

DB::Object - SQL API

SYNOPSIS

    use DB::Object;

    my $dbh = DB::Object->connect({
        driver => 'Pg',
        conf_file => 'db-settings.json',
        database => 'webstore',
        host => 'localhost',
        login => 'store-admin',
        schema => 'auth',
        debug => 3,
    }) || bailout( "Unable to connect to sql server on host localhost: ", DB::Object->error );

    # Legacy regular query
    my $sth = $dbh->prepare( "SELECT login,name FROM login WHERE login='jack'" ) ||
    die( $dbh->errstr() );
    $sth->execute() || die( $sth->errstr() );
    my $ref = $sth->fetchrow_hashref();
    $sth->finish();

    # Get a list of databases;
    my @databases = $dbh->databases;
    # Doesn't exist? Create it:
    my $dbh2 = $dbh->create_db( 'webstore' );
    # Load some sql into it
    my $rv = $dbh2->do( $sql ) || die( $dbh->error );

    # Check a table exists
    $dbh->table_exists( 'customers' ) || die( "Cannot find the customers table!\n" );

    # Get list of tables, as array reference:
    my $tables = $dbh->tables;

    my $cust = $dbh->customers || die( "Cannot get customers object." );
    $cust->where( email => 'john@example.org' );
    my $str = $cust->delete->as_string;
    # Becomes: DELETE FROM customers WHERE email='john\@example.org'

    # Do some insert with transaction
    $dbh->begin_work;
    # Making some other inserts and updates here...
    my $cust_sth_ins = $cust->insert(
        first_name => 'Paul',
        last_name => 'Goldman',
        email => 'paul@example.org',
        active => 0,
    ) || do
    {
        # Rollback everything since the begin_work
        $dbh->rollback;
        die( "Error while create query to add data to table customers: " . $cust->error );
    };
    $result = $cust_sth_ins->as_string;
    # INSERT INTO customers (first_name, last_name, email, active) VALUES('Paul', 'Goldman', 'paul\@example.org', '0')
    $dbh->commit;
    ## Get the last used insert id
    my $id = $dbh->last_insert_id();

    $cust->where( email => 'john@example.org' );
    $cust->order( 'last_name' );
    $cust->having( email => qr/\@example/ );
    $cust->limit( 10 );
    my $cust_sth_sel = $cust->select || die( "An error occurred while creating a query to select data frm table customers: " . $cust->error );
    # Becomes:
    # SELECT id, first_name, last_name, email, created, modified, active, created::ABSTIME::INTEGER AS created_unixtime, modified::ABSTIME::INTEGER AS modified_unixtime, CONCAT(first_name, ' ', last_name) AS name FROM customers WHERE email='john\@example.org' HAVING email ~ '\@example' ORDER BY last_name LIMIT 10

    $cust->reset;
    $cust->where( email => 'john@example.org' );
    my $cust_sth_upd = $cust->update( active => 0 )
    # Would become:
    # UPDATE ONLY customers SET active='0' WHERE email='john\@example.org'

    ## Lets' dump the result of our query
    ## First to STDERR
    $login->where( "login='jack'" );
    $login->select->dump();
    ## Now dump the result to a file
    $login->select->dump( "my_file.txt" );

Using fields objects

    $cust->where( $dbh->OR( $cust->fo->email == 'john@example.org', $cust->fo->id == 2 ) );
    my $ref = $cust->select->fetchrow_hashref;

Doing some left join

    my $geo_tbl = $dbh->geoip || return( $self->error( "Unable to get the database object \"geoip\"." ) );
    my $name_tbl = $dbh->geoname || return( $self->error( "Unable to get the database object \"geoname\"." ) );
    $geo_tbl->as( 'i' );
    $name_tbl->as( 'l' );
    $geo_tbl->where( "INET '?'" << $geo_tbl->fo->network );
    $geo_tbl->alias( id => 'ip_id' );
    $name_tbl->alias( country_iso_code => 'code' );
    my $sth = $geo_tbl->select->join( $name_tbl, $geo_tbl->fo->geoname_id == $name_tbl->fo->geoname_id );
    # SELECT
    #     -- tables fields
    # FROM
    #     geoip AS i
    #     LEFT JOIN geoname AS l ON i.geoname_id = l.geoname_id
    # WHERE
    #     INET '?' << i.network

Using a promise (Promise::Me) to execute an asynchronous query:

    my $sth = $dbh->prepare( "SELECT some_slow_function(?)" ) || die( $dbh->error );
    my $p = $sth->promise(10)->then(sub
    {
        my $st = shift( @_ );
        my $ref = $st->fetchrow_hashref;
        my $obj = My::Module->new( %$ref );
    })->catch(sub
    {
        $log->warn( "Failed to execute query: ", @_ );
    });
    # Do other regular processing here
    # Get the My::Module object
    my( $obj ) = await( $p );

VERSION

    v0.10.1

DESCRIPTION

DB::Object is a SQL API much alike DBI, but with the added benefits that it formats queries in a simple object oriented, chaining way.

So why use a private module instead of using that great DBI package?

At first, I started to inherit from DBI to conform to perlmod perl manual page and to general perl coding guidlines. It became very quickly a real hassle. Barely impossible to inherit, difficulty to handle error, too much dependent from an API that changes its behaviour with new versions. In short, I wanted a better, more accurate control over the SQL connection and an easy way to format sql statement using an object oriented approach.

So, DB::Object acts as a convenient, modifiable wrapper that provides the programmer with an intuitive, user-friendly, object oriented and hassle free interface.

However, if you use the power of this interface to prepare queries conveniently, you should cache the resulting statement handler object, because there is an obvious real cost penalty in preparing queries and they absolutely do not need to be prepared each time. So you can do something like:

    my $sth;
    unless( $sth = $dbh->cache_query_get( 'some_arbitrary_identifier' ) )
    {
        # prepare the query
        my $tbl = $dbh->some_table || die( $dbh->error );
        $tbl->where( id => '?' );
        $sth = $tbl->select || die( $tbl->error );
        $dbh->cache_query_set( some_arbitrary_identifier => $sth );
    }
    $sth->exec(12) || die( $sth->error );
    my $ref = $sth->fetchrow_hashref;

This will provide you with the convenience and power of DB::Object while keeping execution fast.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

Create a new instance of DB::Object. Nothing much to say.

connect

Provided with a database, login, password, server:[port], driver, schema, and optional hash or hash reference of parameters and this will issue a database connection and return the resulting database handler.

Create a new instance of DB::Object, but also attempts a connection to SQL server.

It can take either an array of value in the order database name, login, password, host, driver and optionally schema, or it can take a has or hash reference. The hash or hash reference attributes are as follow:

database or DB_NAME

The database name you wish to connect to

login or DB_LOGIN

The login used to access that database

passwd or DB_PASSWD

The password that goes along

host or DB_HOST

The server, that is hostname of the machine serving a SQL server.

port or DB_PORT

The port to connect to

driver or DB_DRIVER

The driver you want to use. It needs to be of the same type than the server you want to connect to. If you are connecting to a MySQL server, you would use mysql, if you would connecto to an Oracle server, you would use oracle.

You need to make sure that those driver are properly installed in the system before attempting to connect.

To install the required driver, you could start with the command line:

    perl -MCPAN -e shell

which will provide you a special shell to install modules in a convenient way.

schema or DB_SCHEMA

The schema to use to access the tables. Currently only used by PostgreSQL

opt

This takes a hash reference and contains the standard DBI options such as PrintError, RaiseError, AutoCommit, etc

conf_file or DB_CON_FILE

This is used to specify a json connection configuration file. It can also provided via the environment variable DB_CON_FILE. It has the following structure:

    {
    "database": "some_database",
    "host": "db.example.com",
    "login": "sql_joe",
    "passwd": "some password",
    "driver": "Pg",
    "schema": "warehouse",
    "opt":
        {
        "RaiseError": false,
        "PrintError": true,
        "AutoCommit": true
        }
    }

Alternatively, it can contain connections parameters for multiple databases and drivers, such as:

    {
        "databases": [
            {
            "database": "some_database",
            "host": "db.example.com",
            "port": 5432,
            "login": "sql_joe",
            "passwd": "some password",
            "driver": "Pg",
            "schema": "warehouse",
            "opt":
                {
                "RaiseError": false,
                "PrintError": true,
                "AutoCommit": true
                }
            },
            {
            "database": "other_database",
            "host": "db.example2.com",
            "login": "sql_bob",
            "passwd": "other password",
            "driver": "mysql",
            },
            {
            "database": "/path/to/my/database.sqlite",
            "driver": "SQLite",
            }
        ]
    }
uri or DB_CON_URI

This is used to specify an uri to contain all the connection parameters for one database connection. It can also provided via the environment variable DB_CON_URI. For example:

    http://db.example.com:5432?database=some_database&login=sql_joe&passwd=some%020password&driver=Pg&schema=warehouse&&opt=%7B%22RaiseError%22%3A+false%2C+%22PrintError%22%3Atrue%2C+%22AutoCommit%22%3Atrue%7D
    

Here the opt parameter is passed as a json string, for example:

    {"RaiseError": false, "PrintError":true, "AutoCommit":true}

If values are provided, they are allocated to the statement object and will be applied when the query will be executed.

Example:

    $dbh->bind()
    # or
    $dbh->bind->where( "something" )
    # or
    $dbh->bind->select->fetchrow_hashref()
    # and then later

cache

Activate caching.

    $tbl->cache->select->fetchrow_hashref();

cache_connections

Sets/get the cached database connection.

cache_dir

Sets or gets the directory on the file system used for caching data.

cache_query_get

    my $sth;
    unless( $sth = $dbh->cache_query_get( 'some_arbitrary_identifier' ) )
    {
        # prepare the query
        my $tbl = $dbh->some_table || die( $dbh->error );
        $tbl->where( id => '?' );
        $sth = $tbl->select || die( $tbl->error );
        $dbh->cache_query_set( some_arbitrary_identifier => $sth );
    }
    $sth->exec(12) || die( $sth->error );
    my $ref = $sth->fetchrow_hashref;

Provided with a unique name, and this will return a cached statement object if it exists already, otherwise it will return undef

cache_query_set

    my $sth;
    unless( $sth = $dbh->cache_query_get( 'some_arbitrary_identifier' ) )
    {
        # prepare the query
        my $tbl = $dbh->some_table || die( $dbh->error );
        $tbl->where( id => '?' );
        $sth = $tbl->select || die( $tbl->error );
        $dbh->cache_query_set( some_arbitrary_identifier => $sth );
    }
    $sth->exec(12) || die( $sth->error );
    my $ref = $sth->fetchrow_hashref;

Provided with a unique name and a statement object (DB::Object::Statement), and this will cache it.

What this does simply is store the statement object in a global $QUERIES_CACHE hash reference of identifier-statement object pairs.

It returns the statement object cached.

cache_tables

Sets or gets the DB::Object::Cache::Tables object.

check_driver

Check that the driver set in $SQL_DRIVER in ~/etc/common.cfg is indeed available.

It does this by calling "available_drivers".

connect

This will attempt a database server connection.

It called "_connection_params2hash" to get the necessary connection parameters, which is superseded in each driver package.

Then, it will call "_check_connect_param" to get the right parameters for connection.

It will also call "_check_default_option" to get some driver specific default options unless the previous call to _check_connect_param returned an has with a property opt.

It will then set the following current object properties: "database", "host", "port", "login", "passwd", "driver", "cache", "bind", "opt"

Unless specified in the connection options retrieved with "_check_default_option", it sets some basic default value:

AutoCommit 1
PrintError 0
RaiseError 0

Finally it tries to connect by calling the, possibly superseded, method "_dbi_connect"

It instantiate a DB::Object::Cache::Tables object to cache database tables and return the current object.

constant_queries_cache

Returns the global value for $CONSTANT_QUERIES_CACHE

constant_queries_cache_get

Provided with some hash reference with properties pack, file and line that are together used as a key in the cache and this will use an existing entry in the cache if available.

constant_queries_cache_set

Provided with some hash reference with properties pack, file and line that are together used as a key in the cache and query_object and this will set an entry in the cache. it returns the hash reference initially provided.

copy

Provided with either a reference to an hash or an hash of key => value pairs, "copy" will first execute a select statement on the table object, then fetch the row of data, then replace the key-value pair in the result by the ones provided, and finally will perform an insert.

Return false if no data to copy were provided, otherwise it always returns true.

create_db

This is a method that must be implemented by the driver package.

create_table

This is a method that must be implemented by the driver package.

data_sources

Given an optional list of options as hash, this return the data source of the database handler.

data_type

Given a reference to an array or an array of data type, "data_type" will check their availability in the database driver.

If nothing found, it return an empty list in list context, or undef in scalar context.

If something was found, it returns a hash in list context or a reference to a hash in list context.

disconnect

Disconnect from database. Returns the return code.

    my $rc = $dbh->disconnect;

do

Provided with a string representing a sql query, some hash reference of attributes and some optional values to bind and this will execute the query and return the statement handler.

The attributes list will be used to prepare the query and the bind values will be used when executing the query.

Example:

    $rc = $dbh->do( $statement ) || die( $dbh->errstr );
    $rc = $dbh->do( $statement, \%attr ) || die( $dbh->errstr );
    $rv = $dbh->do( $statement, \%attr, @bind_values ) || die( $dbh->errstr );
    my $rows_deleted = $dbh->do(
    q{
       DELETE FROM table WHERE status = ?
    }, undef(), 'DONE' ) || die( $dbh->errstr );

prepare_cached

Same as "prepare" except the query is cached.

query

It prepares and executes the given SQL query with the options provided and return "undef" in perlfunc upon error or the statement handler upon success.

supported_class

Returns the list of driver packages such as DB::Object::Postgres

supported_drivers

Returns the list of driver name such as Pg

table

Given a table name, "table" will return a DB::Object::Tables object. The object is cached for re-use.

When a cached table object is found, it is cloned and reset (using "reset"), before it is returned to avoid undesirable effets in following query that would have some table properties set such as table alias.

table_exists

Provided with a table name and this returns true if the table exist or false otherwise.

table_info

This is a method that must be implemented by the driver package.

table_push

Add the given table name to the stack of cached table names.

tables

Connects to the database and finds out the list of all available tables. If cache is available, it will use it instead of querying the database server.

Returns undef or empty list in scalar or list context respectively if no table found.

Otherwise, it returns the list of table in list context or a reference of it in scalar context.

tables_cache

Returns the table cache object

tables_info

This is a method that must be implemented by the driver package.

tables_refresh

Rebuild the list of available database table.

Returns the list of table in list context or a reference of it in scalar context.

TRUE

Returns TRUE to be used in queries.

unix_timestamp

See "unix_timestamp" in DB::Object::Tables

unlock

This is a convenient wrapper around "unlock" in DB::Object::Query

update

See "update" in DB::Object::Tables

use

Given a database, it switch to it, but before it checks that the database exists. If the database is different than the current one, it sets the multi_db parameter, which will have the fields in the queries be prefixed by their respective database name.

It returns the database handler.

use_cache

Provided with a boolean value and this sets or get the use_cache parameter.

use_bind

Provided with a boolean value and this sets or get the use_cache parameter.

variables

It returns a blank string if nothing was found, or the value found.

version

This is a method that must be implemented by the driver package.

where

See "where" in DB::Object::Tables

_cache_this

Provided with a query, this will cache it for future re-use.

It does some check and maintenance job to ensure the cache does not get too big whenever it exceed the value of $CACHE_SIZE set in the main config file.

It returns the cached statement as an DB::Object::Statement object.

_check_connect_param

Provided with an hash reference of connection parameters, this will get the valid parameters by calling "_connection_parameters" and the connection default options by calling "_connection_options"

It returns the connection parameters hash reference.

_check_default_option

Provided with an hash reference of options, and it actually returns it, so this does not do much, because this method is supposed to be supereded by the driver package.

_connection_options

Provided with an hash reference of connection parameters and this will returns an hash reference of options whose keys match the regular expression /^[A-Z][a-zA-Z]+/

So this does not do much, because this method is supposed to be superseded by the driver package.

_connection_parameters

Returns an array reference containing the following keys: db login passwd host port driver database server opt uri debug

_connection_params2hash

Provided with an hash reference of connection parameters and this will check if the following environment variables exists and if so use them: DB_NAME, DB_LOGIN, DB_PASSWD, DB_HOST, DB_PORT, DB_DRIVER, DB_SCHEMA

If the parameter property uri was provided of if the environment variable DB_CON_URI is set, it will use this connection uri to get the necessary connection parameters values.

An URI could be http://localhost:5432?database=somedb or file:/foo/bar?opt={"RaiseError":true}

Alternatively, if the connection parameter conf_file is provided then its json content will be read and decoded into an hash reference.

The following keys can be used in the json data in the conf_file: database, login, passwd, host, port, driver, schema, opt

The port can be specified in the host parameter by separating it with a semicolon such as localhost:5432

The opt parameter can Alternatively be provided through the environment variable DB_OPT

It returns the hash reference of connection parameters.

_clean_statement

Given a query string or a reference to it, it cleans the statement by removing leading and trailing space before and after line breaks.

It returns the cleaned up query as a string if the original query was provided as a scalar reference.

_convert_datetime2object

Provided with an hash or hash reference of options and this will simply return the data property.

This does not do anything meaningful, because it is supposed to be superseded by the diver package.

_convert_json2hash

Provided with an hash or hash reference of options and this will simply return the data property.

This does not do anything meaningful, because it is supposed to be superseded by the diver package.

_dbi_connect

This will call "_dsn" which must exist in the driver package, and based on the dsn received, this will initiate a "connect_cache" in DBI if the object property "cache_connections" has a true value, or simply a "connect" in DBI otherwise.

It returns the database handler.

_decode_json

Provided with some json data and this will decode it using JSON and return the associated hash reference or "undef" in perlfunc if an error occurred.

_dsn

This will die complaining the driver has not implemented this method, unless the driver did implement it.

_encode_json

Provided with an hash reference and this will encode it into a json string and return it.

_make_sth

Given a package name and a hash reference, this builds a statement object with all the necessary parameters.

It also sets the query time to the current time with the parameter query_time

It returns an object of the given $package.

_param2hash

Provided with some hash reference parameters and this will simply return it, so it does not do anything meaningful.

This is supposed to be superseded by the driver package.

_process_limit

A convenient wrapper around the "_process_limit" in DB::Object::Query

_query_object_add

Provided with a DB::Object::Query and this will add it to the current object property query_object and return it.

_query_object_create

This is supposed to be called from a DB::Object::Tables

Create a new DB::Object::Query object, sets the debug and verbose values and sets its property "table_object" in DB::Object::Query to the value of the current object.

_query_object_current

Returns the current query_object

_query_object_get_or_create

Check to see if the "query_object" is already set and then return its value, otherwise create a new object by calling "_query_object_create" and return it.

_query_object_remove

Provided with a DB::Object::Query and this will remove it from the current object property query_object.

It returns the object removed.

_reset_query

If this has not already been reset, this will mark the current query object as reset and calls "_query_object_remove" and return the value for "_query_object_get_or_create"

If it has been already reset, this will return the value for "_query_object_current"

OPERATORS

AND( VALUES )

Given a value, this returns a DB::Object::AND object. You can retrieve the value with "value" in DB::Object::AND

This is used by "where"

    my $op = $dbh->AND( login => 'joe', status => 'active' );
    # will produce:
    WHERE login = 'joe' AND status = 'active'

NOT( VALUES )

Given a value, this returns a DB::Object::NOT object. You can retrieve the value with "value" in DB::Object::NOT

This is used by "where"

    my $op = $dbh->AND( login => 'joe', status => $dbh->NOT( 'active' ) );
    # will produce:
    WHERE login = 'joe' AND status != 'active'

OR( VALUES )

Given a value, this returns a DB::Object::OR object. You can retrieve the value with "value" in DB::Object::OR

This is used by "where"

    my $op = $dbh->OR( login => 'joe', login => 'john' );
    # will produce:
    WHERE login = 'joe' OR login = 'john'
