NAME

Jifty::Handle -- A database handle class for Jifty

DESCRIPTION

A wrapper around Jifty::DBI::Handle which is aware of versions in the database

METHODS

new PARAMHASH

This class method instantiates a new Jifty::Handle object. This object deals with database handles for the system. After it is created, it will be a subclass of Jifty::DBI::Handle.

canonical_database_name

Returns the canonical name of the application's database (the actual name that will be given to the database driver). This name is a lower-case version of the Database argument in the Database section of the framework config.

For SQLite databases (where the database name is actually a filename), this also converts a relative path into an absolute path based at the application root.

connect ARGS

Like Jifty::DBI's connect method but pulls the name of the database from the current Jifty::Config.

check_schema_version

Make sure that we have a recent enough database schema. If we don't, then error out.

create_database MODE

MODE is either "print" or "execute".

This method either prints the commands necessary to create the database or actually creates it, depending on the value of MODE.

drop_database MODE

MODE is either "print" or "execute".

This method either prints the commands necessary to drop the database or actually drops it, depending on the value of MODE.
