NAME

Catalyst::TraitFor::Model::DBIC::Schema::SchemaProxy - Proxy Schema Methods and Options from Model

DESCRIPTION

Allows you to call your DBIx::Class::Schema methods directly on the Model instance, and passes config options to your DBIx::Class::Schema and DBIx::Class::ResultSet attributes at "BUILD" time.
Methods and attributes local to your "Model" take precedence over DBIx::Class::Schema or DBIx::Class::ResultSet methods and attributes.

CREATING SCHEMA CONFIG ATTRIBUTES

To create attributes in your "Schema.pm", use either Moose or Class::Accessor::Grouped, which is inherited from by all DBIx::Class classes automatically. E.g.:
    __PACKAGE__->mk_group_accessors(simple => qw/
        config_key1
        config_key2
        ...
    /);
Or with Moose:
    use Moose;
    has config_key1 => (is => 'rw', default => 'default_value');
This code can be added after the md5sum on DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader generated schemas.
At app startup, any non-local options will be passed to these accessors, and can be accessed as usual via "$schema->config_key1".
These config values go into your "Model::DB" block, along with normal config values.

CREATING RESULTSET CONFIG ATTRIBUTES

You can create classdata on DBIx::Class::ResultSet classes to hold values from Catalyst config.
The code for this looks something like this:
    package MySchema::ResultSet::Foo;
    use base 'DBIx::Class::ResultSet';
    __PACKAGE__->mk_group_accessors(inherited => qw/
        rs_config_key1
        rs_config_key2
        ...
    /);
    __PACKAGE__->rs_config_key1('default_value');
Or, if you prefer Moose:
    package MySchema::ResultSet::Foo;
    use Moose;
    use MooseX::NonMoose;
    use MooseX::ClassAttribute;
    extends 'DBIx::Class::ResultSet';
    sub BUILDARGS { $_[2] } # important
    class_has rs_config_key1 => (is => 'rw', default => 'default_value');
    ...
    __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;
    1;
In your catalyst config, use the generated Model name as the config key, e.g.:
    <Model::DB::Users>
        strict_passwords 1
    </Model::DB::Users>
