DESCRIPTION

Meta object is used internally for describing the table schema.

Inheritance

The key feature is inheritance. You can inherit schema, add or remove columns, specify new relationships and so on.

    package Parent;
    use base 'MyDB';

    __PACKAGE__->schema(
        table       => 'parent',
        columns     => [qw/id title/],
        primary_key => 'id'
    );

    package Child;
    use base 'Parent';

    __PACKAGE__->schema->add_column('description');
