Oryx::DBI::Parent - DBI implementation of parent relationships
This is the DBI implementation of Oryx subclassing relationships. If one class extends another, then the implementation in this class manages the loading of the parent information into the child.
This is just a quick run-down of implementation details as of this writing to help introduce users to the database internals. These details may change with future releases and might have changed since this documentation was written.
Each class that subclasses one or more Oryx class will have an additional link table associated with it to identify it's parent records. This class then uses that information to load the class data for each parent into a subclass record upon construction.
