If you're new to Storm check out Storm::Tutorial.

SYNOPSIS

    package Foo;

    use Storm::Object;

    storm_table('Foo');

    has 'id' => ( is => 'rw', traits => [qw( PrimaryKey AutoIncrement )] );

    has 'label' => ( is => 'rw' );



    # and then ....

    package main;

    use Storm;

    # connect to a database
    $storm = Storm->new( source => ['DBI:SQLite:dbname=:memory:'] );

    $o = Foo->new( label => 'Storm Enabled Object' );

    # store object
    $storm->insert( $o );

    # update object
    $o->label( 'Updated Object' );
    $storm->update( $o );

    # sync object with database
    $storm->refresh( $o );

    # lookup object in database
    $o = $storm->lookup( 'Foo', 1 );

    # search for objects in database
    $query = $storm->select( 'Foo' );
    $query->where( '.label', '=', 'Updated Object' )
    $iter  = $query->results;
    @results = $iter->all;

    # delete objects
    $storm->delete( $o );

    

DESCRIPTION

Storm is a Moose based library for storing and retrieving objects over a DBI connection.

ATTRIBUTES

aeolus

Read-only.

A Storm::Aeolus object for installing/uninstalling database tables.

live_objects

Read-only.

A Storm::LiveObjects object for tracking the set of live objects. Creates scope objects to help ensure that objects are not garbage collected. This is used internally and you typically shouldn't need to access it yourself. It is documented here for completeness.

policy

The policy determines how types are defined in the database and can be used to customize how types are inflated/deflated. See Storm::Policy for more details.

source

Required.

The Storm::Source object responsible for spawning active database handles. A Storm::Source object will be coerced from a ArrayRef or Hashref.

table_prefix

The prefix to add to table names.

METHODS

delete @objects

Deletes the objects from the database.

delete_query $class

Returns a Storm::Query::Delete instance for deleting objects of type $class from the database.

delete_where $class

Returns a Storm::Query::DeleteWhere instance for deleting objects of type $class from the database using a where clause.

do_transaction \&func

Creates and commits a Storm::Transaction. The \&func will be called within the transaction.

insert @objects

Insert objects into the database.

insert_query $class

Returns a Storm::Query::Insert instance for inserting objects of type $class into the database.

lookup $class, @ids

Retrieve objects from the database.

lookup_query $class

Returns a Storm::Query::Lookup instance for retrieving objects of type $class from the database.

new_transaction \&func

Returns a new transaction. \&func is the code to be called within the transaction.

refresh @objects

Update the @objects with data from the database.

refresh_query $class

Returns a Storm::Query::Refresh instance for refresh objects of type $class.

select $class, @objects

Synonamous with select_query. Provided for consistency.

select_query $class

Returns a Storm::Query::Select instance for selecting objects from the database.

table ClassName | Str

Returns the name of the table with the table_prefix prepended for the given ClassName. Prepends table_prefix to argument if it is a string.

update @objects

Update the @objects in the database.

update_query

Returns a Storm::Query::Select instance for updating objects in the database.

Special thanks to Yuval Kogman and Dave Rolsky, for who without their talented work and this library would not be possible.

The code for managing the live object set and the scope relies on modified code written by Yuval Kogman for KiokuDB. Documentation for this feature was also taken from KiokuDB.

The code for managing the policy and generating sql statements relies on modified code written by Dave Rolsky for Fey.
