DESCRIPTION

    package Schema::ResultSet::User;
    use parent 'DBIx::Class::ResultSet';
    __PACKAGE__->load_components('AccessorsEverywhere');
    1;

    package Schema::Result::User;
    use parent qw/DBIx::Class::Core/;
    __PACKAGE__->table("users");
    __PACKAGE__->add_columns(
        id => {
            data_type         => "integer",
            is_auto_increment => 1,
            is_nullable       => 0,
        },
        'the_firstNameX' => {   # a really poorly named column in the db
            accessor    => 'first_name',     # a "perlish" accessor
            data_type   => "varchar",
            is_nullable => 1,
            size        => 255
        },
    );
    __PACKAGE__->set_primary_key("id");
    1;

    ## Your app:
    $schema->resultset('User')->create({ first_name => 'Bill' });
    $schema->resultset('User')->search({ first_name => 'Bill' });

By specifying the accessor attribute when defining a table schema, DBIx::Class can change the name of accessors it creates for those columns. This can be extremely helpful when the database fields are poorly named and not under your control. Unfortunately, DBIx::Class expects the table column names when creating new entries, searching, etc.

DBIx::Class::AccessorsEverywhere is component that can be loaded into your ResultSet classes that allows the use of the accessor names instead in create, search, etc. operations.

This is an early release. Don't expect this to work everywhere. The following DBIx::Class methods have been tested, others might work, but need to be tested.

    $rs->create({ accessor_name => 'value' });
    $rs->search({ accessor_name => 'value' });
