Accept custom connection callback sub(s) #19

I think it would be really handy if you could specify a coderef to be executed when the database is connected.

I have a few applications where it would be great to use this (in fact I could replace a lot of icky code with this module),
but I have custom actions that happen after connecting.

For example:

  • set schema search path
  • connect additional databases (sqlite)
  • set job priority

I took a look at the code and i think it would be fairly simple to add to _connect.

Is this something you'd be interested in having in the main module?
I'd be happy to whip up the code and submit a pull req if you think that'd be a good feature.

It looks like I could easily subclass DBIx::Connector or one of the drivers and override _connect which would get me the same thing, but I think it would be a handy feature to have in the main module.

What do you think?

I guess a before-connect sub could be handy, too, so that you could lazily set up (or reinitialize) a proxy connection or something like that.


Replicates issue #8.

Sorry about that... I glanced at the other issues but I guess I didn't see that. Thanks for the tip, I'll check that out!


Oh, It's the Callbacks that I had recently learned of... I've got that as an open tab in my browser somewhere... guess I better check it out. Thanks again!


No problem. :-)
