=head1 NAME

DBIx::Async - use L<DBI> with L<IO::Async>

=head1 VERSION

version 0.003


 #!/usr/bin/env perl 
 use strict;
 use warnings;
 use feature qw(say);
 use IO::Async::Loop;
 use DBIx::Async;
 my $loop = IO::Async::Loop->new;
 say 'Connecting to db';
 $loop->add(my $dbh = DBIx::Async->connect(
   '', {
     AutoCommit => 1,
     RaiseError => 1,
 $dbh->do(q{CREATE TABLE tmp(id integer primary key autoincrement, content text)})
 # ... put some values in it
 ->then(sub { $dbh->do(q{INSERT INTO tmp(content) VALUES ('some text'), ('other text') , ('more data')}) })
 # ... and then read them back
 ->then(sub {
   # obviously you'd never really use * in a query like this...
   my $sth = $dbh->prepare(q{select * from tmp});
   # the while($row = fetchrow_hashref) construct isn't a good fit
   # but we attempt to provide something reasonably close using the
   # ->iterate helper
     fetchrow_hashref => sub {
       my $row = shift;
       say "Row: " . join(',', %$row);
 })->on_done(sub {
   say "Query complete";
 })->on_fail(sub { warn "Failure: @_\n" })->get;


Wrapper for L<DBI>, for running queries much slower than usual but without blocking.

C<NOTE>: This is an early release, please get in contact via email (see L</AUTHOR>
section) or RT before relying on it for anything.


Greatly lacking. See C<examples/benchmark.pl>, in one sample run the results looked
like this:

               Rate DBIx::Async DBD::SQLite
 DBIx::Async 1.57/s          --        -89%
 DBD::SQLite 13.8/s        776%          --

If you're doing anything more than occasional light queries, you'd probably be better
off with blocking DBI-based code running in a fork.

=head1 METHODS

Where possible, L<DBI> method signatures are used.

=head2 connect

Constuctor. Sets up our instance with parameters that will be used when we attempt to
connect to the given DSN.

Takes the following options:

=over 4

=item * $dsn - the data source name, should be something like 'dbi:SQLite:dbname=:memory:'

=item * $user - username to connect as

=item * $pass - password to connect with

=item * $opt - any options


Options consist of:

=over 4

=item * RaiseError - set this to 1

=item * AutoCommit - whether to run in AutoCommit mode by default, probably works better
if this is set to 1 as well


C<NOTE>: Despite the name, this method does not initiate a connection. This may change in
a future version, but if this behaviour does change this method will still return C<$self>.

Returns $self.

=head2 dsn

Returns the DSN used in the L</connect> request.

=head2 user

Returns the username used in the L</connect> request.

=head2 pass

Returns the password used in the L</connect> request.

=head2 options

Returns any options that were set in the L</connect> request.

=head2 do

Runs a query with optional bind parameters. Takes the following parameters:

=over 4

=item * $sql - the query to run

=item * $options - any options to apply (can be undef)

=item * @params - the parameters to bind (can be empty)


Returns a L<Future> which will resolve when this query completes.

=head2 begin_work

Starts a transaction.

Returns a L<Future> which will resolve when this transaction has started.

=head2 commit

Commit the current transaction.

Returns a L<Future> which will resolve when this transaction has been committed.

=head2 savepoint

Marks a savepoint. Takes a single parameter: the name to use for the savepoint.


Returns a L<Future> which will resolve once the savepoint has been created.

=head2 release

Releases a savepoint. Takes a single parameter: the name to use for the savepoint.


This is similar to L</commit> for the work which has been completed since
the savepoint, although the database state is not updated until the transaction
itself is committed.

Returns a L<Future> which will resolve once the savepoint has been released.

=head2 rollback

Rolls back this transaction. Takes an optional savepoint which
can be used to roll back to the savepoint rather than cancelling
the entire transaction.

Returns a L<Future> which will resolve once the transaction has been
rolled back.

=head2 prepare

Attempt to prepare a query.

Returns the statement handle as a L<DBIx::Async::Handle> instance.


These are unlikely to be of much use in application code.

=head2 queue

Queue a request. Used internally.

Returns a L<Future>.

=head2 worker_class_from_dsn

Attempts to locate a suitable worker subclass, given a DSN.

For example:


should return 'DBIx::Async::Worker::SQLite'.

Note that this method will load the class if it is not already

Returns the class as a string.

=head2 sth_ch

The channel used for prepared statements.

=head2 ret_ch

The channel which returns values.

=head2 _add_to_loop

Sets things up when we are added to a loop.

=head2 _remove_from_loop

Doesn't do anything yet.

=head1 TODO

=over 4

=item * Much of the L<DBI> API is not yet implemented. Fix this.

=item * Provide a nicer wrapper around transactions.

=item * Consider supporting L<Net::Async::PostgreSQL> and L<Net::Async::MySQL>
natively, might lead to some performance improvements.


=head1 SEE ALSO

=over 4

=item * L<DBI> - the database framework that does all the real work

=item * L<Net::Async::PostgreSQL> - nonblocking interaction with PostgreSQL, not DBI compatible
