NAME

DBIx::Class::Report - Ad-Hoc reporting from DBIx::Class

VERSION

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS

    use DBIx::Class::Report;

    my $report = DBIx::Class::Report->new(
        schema  => $dbic_schema_object,
        sql     => $complicated_sql,
        columns => \@columns_spec,     # same as __PACKAGE__->add_columns()
        methods => {
            method1 => sub { ... },
            method1 => sub { ... },
        },
    );
    my $resultset = $report->fetch(@bind_params_for_complicated_sql);
    while ( my $result = $resultset->next ) {
        # use like a normal dbic result, but it's read only
    }

DESCRIPTION

NOTE: Experimental ALPHA code.

Sometimes it's nice to be able to run ad-hoc SQL and get back a DBIx::Class resultset. We can use DBIx::Class::ResultSource::View, but that requires we hard-code our SQL ahead of time. DBIx::Class::Report allows you to create your SQL on the fly and generate ad-hoc, read-only dbic resultsets which act just like normal dbic objects.

    my $sql = <<'SQL';
      SELECT var.name, ce.event_type, count(*)
        FROM tracking_conversion_event ce
        JOIN tracking_visitor visitor      ON visitor.tracking_visitor_id      = ce.tracking_visitor_id
        JOIN tracking_version_variant curr ON curr.tracking_version_variant_id = visitor.tracking_version_variant_id
        JOIN tracking_version ver          ON ver.tracking_version_id          = curr.tracking_version_id
        JOIN tracking_variant var          ON var.tracking_variant_id          = curr.tracking_variant_id
       WHERE ver.tracking_id = ?
         AND ver.version     = ?
    GROUP BY 1, 2
    SQL

    my $events_per_name = DBIx::Class::Report->new(
       schema  => $schema,
       sql     => $sql,
       columns => [qw/name event_type total/],
       methods => {
           tracking_version => sub {
              my $self = shift;
              return $self->result_source->schema->resultset('TrackingVersion')->find($self->tracking_version_id);
           },
           tracking_variant => sub {
              my $self = shift;
              return $self->result_source->schema->resultset('TrackingVersion')->find($self->tracking_variant_id);
           },
    );

    my $resultset = $events_per_name->fetch( $tracking_id, $version );
    say $resultset->count; # yeah, it behaves just like a normal dbic resultset

    while ( my $result = $resultset->next ) {
       say $result->name;
       say $result->event_type;
       say $result->total;
    }

Note that the methods key installs methods in each returned result object. This allows us to neatly similate inflation or anthing else we need from a standard result object.

ATTRIBUTES

  • columns - An array ref of values which will get passed to DBIx::Class::ResultSet::add_columns - may be a flat list of column names, or also contain column specification hashes.

  • sql - The SQL with placeholders

  • schema - A DBIx::Class::Schema instance

  • methods - A HashRef of optional subroutines to be added to the ::Result namespace for the virtual view.

  • base_class - The base class for the ::Result namespace for the virtual view
