NAME

Data::Domain::SemanticAdapter - Adapter for Data::Semantic objects

VERSION

version 1.100840

DESCRIPTION

This class is an adapter (wrapper) that turns Data::Semantic objects into Data::Domain objects.

It, and therefore all the subclasses, support a -not_in options. If given, the data must be different from all values in the exclusion set, supplied as an arrayref.

METHODS

semantic_class_name

Returns the corresponding semantic class name. This method provides a default mapping, the idea of which is to mirror the layout of the Data::Semantic class tree. If you have a different mapping, override this method in a subclass.

So in the Data::Domain::URI::http class, it will return Data::Semantic::URI::http.

adaptee

Takes the results of semantic_class_name() and semantic_args(), loads the semantic data class and returns a semantic data object with the given args passed to its constructor.

semantic_args

Turns the object's options, specified via OPTIONS(), into arguments to be passed to the semantic data object's constructor. Returns a hash.

_inspect

Inspects the data using the adaptee(). See Data::Domain for more information. Respects the -not_in option and returns a EXCLUSION_SET message, if appropriate. If the adaptee() says that the data is not valid under the given options, an INVALID message is returned.

install_shortcuts

This is a convenience function (not method) that installs shortcuts into the calling package. It expects a mapping hash whose keys are the shortcuts to be created and whose values are the package names relative to Data::Domain::. See Data::Domain, section Shortcut functions for domain constructors, for more information on shortcuts.

Here is an example from Data::Domain::Net:

    our %map = (
        IPv4 => 'Net::IPAddress::IPv4',
        IPv6 => 'Net::IPAddress::IPv6',
    );

    Data::Domain::SemanticAdapter::install_shortcuts(%map);

This installs two functions, IPv4() and IPv6(), into Data::Domain::Net. Now code that wants to use network-based domain objects can just say:

    use Data::Domain::Net ':all';

    my $domain = IPv4(-not_in => [ ... ]);
    $domain->inspect(...);
