Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API::REST - Provides a REST interface to DBIx::Class


version 2.001003


Provides a REST style API interface to the functionality described in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API.

By default provides the following endpoints:

  $base (accepts PUT and GET)
  $base/[identifier] (accepts POST and DELETE)

Where $base is the URI described by "setup", the chain root of the controller, and the request type will determine the Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API method to forward.



Chained: override PathPart: override CaptureArgs: 0

As described in "setup" in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API, this action is the chain root of the controller but has no pathpart or chain parent defined by default, so these must be defined in order for the controller to function. The neatest way is normally to define these using the controller's config.

    ( action => { setup => { PathPart => 'track', Chained => '/api/rest/rest_base' } }, 


Chained: "setup" PathPart: none CaptureArgs: 0

Forwards to list level methods described in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API as follows:

DELETE: forwards to "object" in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API then "delete" in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API POST/PUT: forwards to "object" in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API then "update_or_create" in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API GET: forwards to "list" in Catalyst::Controller::DBIC::API
