NAME

DBIx::SQLEngine::Driver::Trait::NoUnions - For databases without select unions

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  # Classes can import this behavior if they dont have native unions
  use DBIx::SQLEngine::Driver::Trait::NoUnions :all;
 
  # Implements a workaround for unavailable sql_union capability
  $rows = $sqldb->fetch_select_rows( union => [
    { table => foo, columns => * },
    { table => bar, columns => * },
  ] );



DESCRIPTION

This package supports SQL database servers which do natively provide a SQL select with unions. Instead, queries with unions are executed separately and their results combined.

    About Driver Traits

You do not need to use this package directly; it is used internally by those driver subclasses which need it.

For more information about Driver Traits, see About Driver Traits in DBIx::SQLEngine::Driver.

REFERENCE

The following methods are provided:

    Database Capability Information

dbms_union_unsupported()


  $sqldb->dbms_union_unsupported() : 1



Capability Limitation: This driver does not support native select unions.

    Select to Retrieve Data

fetch_select()


  $sqldb->fetch_select( %sql_clauses ) : $row_hashes
  $sqldb->fetch_select( %sql_clauses ) : ($row_hashes,$column_hashes)



Unless passed a union argument pair, simply calls the superclass method. Runs each of the provided queries separately and concatenates their results. Munges the keys used to turn rows into hashes, so that all results use the column names produced by the first of the queries.

fetch_select_rows()


  $sqldb->fetch_select_rows( %sql_clauses ) : $row_arrays
  $sqldb->fetch_select_rows( %sql_clauses ) : ($row_arrays,$column_hashes)



Unless passed a union argument pair, simply calls the superclass method. Runs each of the provided queries separately and concatenates their results.

visit_select()


  $sqldb->visit_select( $code_ref, %sql_clauses ) : @results
  $sqldb->visit_select( %sql_clauses, $code_ref ) : @results



Unless passed a union argument pair, simply calls the superclass method. Runs each of the provided queries separately and concatenates their results.

To Do: This method doesn’t yet munge the column names retrived by the later queries to match the first.

visit_select_rows()


  $sqldb->visit_select_rows( $code_ref, %sql_clauses ) : @results
  $sqldb->visit_select_rows( %sql_clauses, $code_ref ) : @results



Unless passed a union argument pair, simply calls the superclass method. Runs each of the provided queries separately and concatenates their results.

fetchsub_select()


  $sqldb->fetchsub_select( %sql_clauses ) : $coderef



Unless passed a union argument pair, simply calls the superclass method. Runs each of the provided queries separately and concatenates their results.

To Do: This method doesn’t yet munge the column names retrived by the later queries to match the first.

fetchsub_select_rows()


  $sqldb->fetchsub_select_rows( %sql_clauses ) : $coderef



Unless passed a union argument pair, simply calls the superclass method. Runs each of the provided queries separately and concatenates their results.

sql_union() Calls Carp::confess().
