DBI::DBD::SqlEngine - Base class for DBI drivers without their own SQL engine SYNOPSIS
package DBD::myDriver; use base qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine); sub driver { ... my $drh = $proto->SUPER::driver($attr); ... return $drh->{class}; } package DBD::myDriver::dr; @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::dr); sub data_sources { ... } ... package DBD::myDriver::db; @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::db); sub init_valid_attributes { ... } sub init_default_attributes { ... } sub set_versions { ... } sub validate_STORE_attr { my ($dbh, $attrib, $value) = @_; ... } sub validate_FETCH_attr { my ($dbh, $attrib) = @_; ... } sub get_myd_versions { ... } sub get_avail_tables { ... } package DBD::myDriver::st; @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::st); sub FETCH { ... } sub STORE { ... } package DBD::myDriver::Statement; @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::Statement); sub open_table { ... } package DBD::myDriver::Table; @ISA = qw(DBI::DBD::SqlEngine::Table); sub new { ... } DESCRIPTION
DBI::DBD::SqlEngine abstracts the usage of SQL engines from the DBD. DBD authors can concentrate on the data retrieval they want to provide. It is strongly recommended that you read DBD::File::Developers and DBD::File::Roadmap, because many of the DBD::File API is provided by DBI::DBD::SqlEngine. Currently the API of DBI::DBD::SqlEngine is experimental and will likely change in the near future to provide the table meta data basics like DBD::File. Metadata The following attributes are handled by DBI itself and not by DBI::DBD::SqlEngine, thus they all work as expected: Active ActiveKids CachedKids CompatMode (Not used) InactiveDestroy AutoInactiveDestroy Kids PrintError RaiseError Warn (Not used) The following DBI attributes are handled by DBI::DBD::SqlEngine: AutoCommit Always on. ChopBlanks Works. NUM_OF_FIELDS Valid after "$sth->execute". NUM_OF_PARAMS Valid after "$sth->prepare". NAME Valid after "$sth->execute"; probably undef for Non-Select statements. NULLABLE Not really working, always returns an array ref of ones, as DBD::CSV does not verify input data. Valid after "$sth->execute"; undef for non-select statements. The following DBI attributes and methods are not supported: bind_param_inout CursorName LongReadLen LongTruncOk DBI::DBD::SqlEngine specific attributes In addition to the DBI attributes, you can use the following dbh attributes: sql_engine_version Contains the module version of this driver (readonly) sql_nano_version Contains the module version of DBI::SQL::Nano (readonly) sql_statement_version Contains the module version of SQL::Statement, if available (readonly) sql_handler Contains the SQL Statement engine, either DBI::SQL::Nano or SQL::Statement (readonly). sql_parser_object Contains an instantiated instance of SQL::Parser (readonly). This is filled when used first time (only when used with SQL::Statement). sql_sponge_driver Contains an internally used DBD::Sponge handle (readonly). sql_valid_attrs Contains the list of valid attributes for each DBI::DBD::SqlEngine based driver (readonly). sql_readonly_attrs Contains the list of those attributes which are readonly (readonly). sql_identifier_case Contains how DBI::DBD::SqlEngine deals with non-quoted SQL identifiers: * SQL_IC_UPPER (1) means all identifiers are internally converted into upper-cased pendants * SQL_IC_LOWER (2) means all identifiers are internally converted into lower-cased pendants * SQL_IC_MIXED (4) means all identifiers are taken as they are These conversions happen if (and only if) no existing identifier matches. Once existing identifier is used as known. The SQL statement execution classes doesn't have to care, so don't expect "sql_identifier_case" affects column names in statements like SELECT * FROM foo sql_quoted_identifier_case Contains how DBI::DBD::SqlEngine deals with quoted SQL identifiers (readonly). It's fixated to SQL_IC_SENSITIVE (3), which is interpreted as SQL_IC_MIXED. sql_flags Contains additional flags to instantiate an SQL::Parser. Because an SQL::Parser is instantiated only once, it's recommended to set this flag before any statement is executed. sql_dialect Controls the dialect understood by SQL::Parser. Possible values (delivery state of SQL::Statement): * ANSI * CSV * AnyData Defaults to "CSV". Because an SQL::Parser is instantiated only once and SQL::Parser doesn't allow to modify the dialect once instantiated, it's strongly recommended to set this flag before any statement is executed (best place is connect attribute hash). SUPPORT
You can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command. perldoc DBI::DBD::SqlEngine You can also look for information at: o RT: CPAN's request tracker <> <> o AnnoCPAN: Annotated CPAN documentation <> <> o CPAN Ratings <> o Search CPAN <> Where can I go for more help? For questions about installation or usage, please ask on the mailing list. If you have a bug report, patch or suggestion, please open a new report ticket on CPAN, if there is not already one for the issue you want to report. Of course, you can mail any of the module maintainers, but it is less likely to be missed if it is reported on RT. Report tickets should contain a detailed description of the bug or enhancement request you want to report and at least an easy way to verify/reproduce the issue and any supplied fix. Patches are always welcome, too. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
