NAME

ORLite::Array - Array based objects for ORLite

SYNOPSIS

  # Used like the regular ORLite:
  package Foo;

  # Simplest possible usage. See documentation for ORlite for advanced usage.

  use ORLite::Array 'data/sqlite.db';

  my @awesome = Foo::Person->select(
     'where first_name = ?',
     'Adam',
  );

  # Or used with extensions:
  package Foo;

  use ORLite::Array ();
  use ORLite::Mirror 'http://myserver/path/mydb.sqlite';

DESCRIPTION

ORLite is a light weight ORM specifically designed for used with SQLite databases. By changing ORLite's hash based objects to using array based objects we can cut away some time spend in DBI slicing the objects.

For some sample examples this has show the average time spend in the select() method going from 350 µs/call to 160 µs/call.

ACCESSORS

THIS FEATURE IS EXPERIMENTAL AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE

Encapsulation isn't a goal. With ORLite you were able to access the individual keys of the hash. This isn't an usable posibility with array based objects. As an alternative ORLite::Array marks accessors for non foreign key fields as lvalue methods. This makes it possible to update attributes this way:

  my $person = Foo::Person->select(
      'where id = ?', 42
  );
  $person->age++;
  $person->weigth += 10;

THIS FEATURE IS EXPERIMENTAL AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE

TODO

- Support for updating foreign key fields

COMPATIBILITY

This code is compatible with ORLite version 1.28
