NAME

Class::DBI::AbstractSearch - Abstract Class::DBI's SQL with SQL::Abstract::Limit

SYNOPSIS

  package CD::Music;
  use Class::DBI::AbstractSearch;
  package main;
  my @music = CD::Music->search_where(
      artist => [ 'Ozzy', 'Kelly' ],
      status => { '!=', 'outdated' },
  );
  my @misc = CD::Music->search_where(
      { artist => [ 'Ozzy', 'Kelly' ],
        status => { '!=', 'outdated' } },
      { order_by      => "reldate DESC",
        limit_dialect => 'LimitOffset',
        limit         => 1
        offset        => 2 });

DESCRIPTION

Class::DBI::AbstractSearch is a Class::DBI plugin to glue SQL::Abstract::Limit into Class::DBI.

METHODS

Using this module adds following methods into your data class.
search_where
  $class->search_where(%where);
    
 
Takes a hash to specify WHERE clause. See SQL::Abstract for hash options.
 
  $class->search_where(\%where,\%attrs);
    
 
Takes hash reference to specify WHERE clause. See SQL::Abstract for hash options. Takes a hash reference to specify additional query attributes. Class::DBI::AbstractSearch uses these attributes:
order_by
 
Array reference of fields that will be used to order the results of your query.
limit_dialect
 
Scalar, DBI handle, object class, etc. that describes the syntax model for a LIMIT/OFFSET SQL clause. Please see SQL::Abstract::Limit for more information.
limit
 
Scalar value that will be used for LIMIT argument in a query.
offset
 
Scalar value that will be used for OFFSET argument in a query.
 
Any other attributes are passed to the SQL::Abstract::Limit constructor, and can be used to control how queries are created. For example, to use 'AND' instead of 'OR' by default, use:
 
    $class->search_where(\%where, { logic => 'AND' });
