NAME

Net::LDAP::Batch::Action - base class for LDAP actions

SYNOPSIS

 use Net::LDAP::Batch::Action;
 my $action = Net::LDAP::Batch::Action->new(
            {
                ldap => $net_ldap_object,
            });
 $action->execute or $action->rollback;
        

DESCRIPTION

This is a base class for batch actions.

NOTE: Net::LDAP::Batch::Action objects will croak() if anything unusual happens. This approach assumes that Catastrophic Failure is a Good Thing. So use eval() if you need to catch exceptions.

METHODS

new( hash_ref )

Overrides base Class::Accessor::Fast constructor to call init().

This class defines the following accessor methods, all of which can be set via new() or by themselves.

  • ldap

  • entry

  • complete

  • debug

init

Confirms that the ldap() accessor returns a Net::LDAP-derived object.

execute

Perform the action. Default behaviour is to croak indicating you must override the method in your subclass.

rollback

Undo the action. Default behaviour is to croak indicating you must override the method in your subclass.

get_ldap_err( ldap_msg )

Returns the stringified error message for the ldap_msg object.
