Revision history for Perl extension DBIx::Connector.
0.52 2012-05-29T18:32:42Z
- The DBI params are now encapsulated in a code reference, rather than
stored as the passed array, so that the password is less likely to be
displayed in a dump. Idea borrowed from Rose::DB. Patch from Brad
- Eliminated warning about the non-portability of a v-string on older
Perls. Thanks to Mark Lawrence for the report (Issue #17).
- Removed a couple of leftover examples of the `catch` feature removed
in v0.50. Thanks to Randy Stauner for the patch!
- Eliminated more "Use of qw(...) as parentheses" syntax errors in tests
when running on Perl 5.17.
- Add mention of DBI Callbacks parameter to the docs, as folks often ask
for this functionality, not realizing that the DBI already provides
it. Randy Stauner.
0.51 2012-02-18T00:14:48Z
- Fixed internal exception handling on Perls less than 5.14, where some
exceptions woult not be propagated to the caller.
0.50 2012-02-14T18:25:07Z
- The `catch` functionality has been completely removed. Any `catch`
block passed to `run()`, `txn()`, or `svp()` will be ignored. Errors
will trigger fatal exceptions.
- Removed the `with` method, which was deprecated in 0.34. Use `mode()`
- Fixed bad method call attempted when an `svp()` block failed. Thanks
to Ricardo SIGNES for the regression test and the fix.
- Fixed creation of the SQLite driver savepoint methods so that they
exist and work even if the driver is loaded before DBD::SQLite. Thanks
to Ricardo SIGNES for the regression test and the fix.
0.47 2011-09-26T17:12:07Z
- Use of the deprecated `catch` functionality now warns on every call,
rather than just the first call from a given caller.
0.46 2011-07-17T00:47:49
- Eliminated "Use of qw(...) as parentheses is deprecated" warning in
test when running on Perl 5.14.
- Properly `local`ing `$$` in the `t/base.t` test so that it doesn't die
on Perl 5.15. Thanks to Andreas J. Koenig for the report and diagnosis
and to Nicholas Clark for the fix.
- Duplicate paragraphs removed from `` thanks to Ask Bjørn
- The `catch` functionality is deprecated. It will warn once for each
caller to keep log verbosity down. In the next release, it will warn
for every call. The release after that, it will be removed altogether.
0.45 2011-05-10T21:44:08
- Fixed crash when `in_txn()` was called before an actual connection
was established.
- Strongly recommend setting `AutoCommit` to true in the documentation.
Setting `AutoCommit` to false defeats the scoping behavior of `txn()`
and therefore should not be used.
- Nested exception handling now works properly in nested calls to
`run()` in fixup mode and in nested calls to `txn()` in all modes.
Thanks to Mark Lawrence for the report (RT #66974).
0.44 2011-03-20T01:04:59
- Fixed bug with the MySQL driver introduced by the auto-reconnection
fix in 0.43. Sorry for the lame mistake. [Lee Aylward]
0.43 2011-03-17T20:03:16
- DBIx::Connector now sets the DBI `RaiseError` parameter to true in
`new()` if neither it nor `HandleError` has been specified. This is to
increase the likelihood that exception handling will be properly
triggered in `run()`, `txn()`, and `svp()`. Documentation has also
been added to emphasize the importance of setting `RaiseError` or
`HandleError` appropriately.
- Documented that `AutoInactiveDestroy` is set to true in `new()` if it
is not specified. It's important tht this attribute be true in forking
- After connecting to the database, the MySQL driver,
DBIx::Connector::Driver::mysql, now always sets the
`mysql_auto_reconnect` attribute to false. This is to prevent MySQL's
auto-reconnection feature from interfering with DBIx::Connector's
auto-reconnection functionality in `fixup` mode. Thanks to Karen
Etheridge and Peter Rabbitson for the report.
- Removed mention of the use of the `catch` function from Try::Tiny,
since it is no longer compatible to use passing the exception-handling
function. Just using `catch =>` instead, which is cleaner-looking
anyway (RT #65196).
0.42 2010-12-17T18:35:54
- If a catch block died, the exception was not being propagated. That
is, if a catch block threw an exception, DBIx::Connector ate it, and
any calling code would not be able to catch it. This was a pretty
serious bug; upgrading is strongly recommended for anyone using catch
- When `run()`, `txn()`, or `svp()` was called recursively from within a
second fixup execution, it was not respecting the fact that it was
recursive and could try to start a transaction again. This happened
*only* when a fixup run found that the database was disconnected and
successfully re-connected, so it's a pretty rare condition.
0.41 2010-12-08T21:02:32
- `connect()` no longer returns a disconnected database handle. Thanks
to John Siracusa for the spot (Issue #6).
- Added `disconnect_on_destroy()`, which can be used to disable
disconnecting the database handle when the connector object is
destroyed. Suggested by John Siracusa.
0.40 2010-09-17T18:44:01
- The code refs passed to `run()`, `txn()`, and `svp()` now know their
contexts, so that `wantarray` can be used to decide what to return.
Patch from Yaroslav Korshak.
- Set `AutoInactiveDestroy` on connect with DBI 1.614 and higher, unless
it is explicitly set in the attributes. This makes things even safer
in a forking environment, preventing a parent process from getting
disconnected when a child exits without using the connection. The
reports from Peter Rabbitson and Aran Deltac and subsequent discussion
with Tim Bunce led to the addition of this attribute in DBI 1.614,
which is now the recommended version of DBI.
- `DESTROY()` no longer pings the database or rolls back transactions.
It now simply calls `disconnect`. This avoids warnings during global
destruction, and doesn't seem necessary anyway, as the DBI does these
things during global destruction (and always has). Thanks to Matt
Trout for the heads-up.
- `DESTROY()` now clears `CachedKids`, following the precedent of
DBIx::Class. May not be needed for recent-ish drivers, but seems
harmless and it's nice to avoid warnings were possible. Reported by
Matt Trout.
- The `connected()` method no longer `local`ly sets `RaiseError`. It
instead leaves that to the drivers (currenly only Driver::Oracle).
- The exception classes `DBIx::Connector::TxnRollbackError` and
`DBIx::Connector::SvpRollbackError` now use `our @ISA =` instead of
`use base` to inherit from `DBIx::Connector::RollbackError. This is to
avoid failures from mod_perl restarts. Suggested by Matt Trout.
- Require Test::Pod 1.41 for POD tests so that `L<text|url>` is
considered valid.
0.35 2010-06-04T00:32:02
- Added a scoping block around the execution of the blocks passed to
`run()`, `txn()`, and `svp()`. This prevents an app from exiting when
a user returns from the block via the `next` or `last` keyword, which
in turn prevented transaction management code from running. Thanks to
Aran Deltac for the suggestion.
- Added exception object for rollback failures. This is to keep rollback
failures from completely swallowing up the underlying transaction
0.34 2010-05-03T03:15:40
- Added `mode()` attribute to control the default mode used by `run()`,
`txn()`, and `svp()`.
- Deprecated `with()`. Its use triggers a warning and it will be removed
in a future version. Use `mode()` instead.
0.33 2010-03-31T22:56:07
- A few useful documentation improvements, thanks to Quinn Weaver.
- Added `in_txn()`, which returns true when the connection is in a
transaction and false when it's not.
0.32 2010-02-22T20:15:50
- Switched to using `FETCH()` and `STORE()` to get and set DBI
attributes where possible. The primary reason is to avoid death during
global destruction, when the DBI's `tie`d interface can sometimes be
pulled out from under us. Switched to the OO interface througout to be
0.31 2009-11-09T01:54:52
- Added missing version numbers to DBIx::Connector::Driver::SQLite
and the proxy class used by `with()`.
- Fixed orphaned references to DBIx::Connection to properly be
- Removed methods deprecated in 0.20: `do()`, `txn_do()`, `svp_do()`,
and `clear_cache()`.
- Some refactoring and code cleanup.
- Some doc typos corrected by Robert Buels.
- Fixed test failure on Win32.
0.30 2009-10-29T21:31:02
- Compatibility change: Additional arguments to `run()`, `txn()`, and
`svp()` are no longer passed on to the execution of the block, since
they are immediately available to the closure, anyway. This simplifies
things for integrated exception handling (next item).
- Added integrated exception-handling support to `run()`, `txn()`, and
`svp()`. Thanks to Mark Lawrence for the suggestion.
- Removed the undocumented `savepoint()`, `release()`, and
`rollback_to()` methods from DBIx::Connector, since those methods are
in the drivers, and so were redundant.
- Fixed the `author` section of `META.yml`.
- `svp()` no longer throws an exception whe used with an RDBMS that
doesn't support savepoints. In such situations, savepoints are treated
as a no-op, and thus the transactional behavior of `svp()` becomes the
same as `txn()`.
- Moved up the discussion of calling `svp()` outside of a transaction in
the documentation.
0.20 2009-10-20T22:33:00
- Compatibility changes:
+ Added `run()`, `txn()`, and `svp()` as replacements for `do()`,
`txn_do()`, and `svp_do()`. The latter will issue a warning when
called, and be removed in two releases.
+ Eliminated caching and mod_perl special-casing.
- Fixed the GitHub links for realz.
- Updated minimum required Test::More to 0.88 so that testing classes
with `isa_ok()` will work as expected. Thanks to mlawren for the spot.
- Fixed bug passing arguments on retry in `txn()`. Thanks to [Mark
Lawrence]( for the pull request.
- Fixed a bug in `txn()` where it would fail to notify other blocks that
it was running the block when the user started a transaction.
- Changed `dbh()` so that it does not call `ping()` when it is called
from within a code reference passed to a `run*()` method.
- Made the docs with regard to the re-execution of a code reference
passed to `run()` and friends in fixup mode more accurate, thanks to
Tim Bunce.
- Fetching a cached database handle now always checks its `Active`
attribute as well as different process and thread IDs. The only thing
not always done is `ping`ing the database.
- Added `with()`.
0.12 2009-10-06T16:29:16
- Fixed the GitHub links, which were still using the old name.
- Removed `use feature` and `use utf8` from `t/pod-coverage.t` -- those
were pastos from another project.
- Removed `use DBD::SQLite` from DBix::Connector::Driver::SQLite. It
will already have been loaded by the time that code loads.
0.11 2009-10-05T22:05:29
- Filled in the important details in the README.
- Changed name from DBIx::Connection to DBIx::Connector, as there is
already a module called DBIx::Connection on the CPAN.
0.10 2009-10-05T21:16:03
- Initial version, with code borrowed from DBIx::Class, Apache::DBI,
Catalyst::Model::DBI, and various other locales.
