=head1 DESCRIPTION

C<Rose::DB::Object::Std::Metadata> is a subclass of L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata> that is designed to serve the needs of L<Rose::DB::Object::Std> objects.  See the L<Rose::DB::Object::Std> documentations for information on what differentiates it from L<Rose::DB::Object>.

Only the methods that are overridden are documented here.  See the L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata> documentation for the rest.

=head1 OBJECT METHODS

=over 4

=item B<add_primary_key_column COLUMN>

This method is an alias for the C<add_primary_key_columns()> method.

=item B<add_primary_key_columns COLUMNS>

Since L<Rose::DB::Object::Std> objects must have a single primary key column named "id", calling this method with a COLUMNS argument of anything other than the column name "id" or a reference to an array containing the column name "id" will cause a fatal error.

In general, you do not need to use this method at all since the C<primary_key_columns()> method is hard-coded to always return "id".

=item B<initialize [ARGS]>

This method does the same thing as the L<Rose::DB::Object::Metadata> method of the same name, with one exception.  If there is no column named "id" in the list of columns, a scalar primary key column named "id" is added to the column list.  Then initialization proceeds as usual.

=item B<primary_key_columns>

Always returns the column name "id" (in list context) or a reference to an array containing the column name "id" (in scalar context).
