DESCRIPTION

Objects of this class store and manipulate metadata for unique keys in a database table. Each unique key is made up of one or more columns.


OBJECT METHODS

add_column [COLUMNS]
This method is an alias for the add_columns method.

add_columns [COLUMNS]
Add COLUMNS to the list of columns that make up the unique key. COLUMNS must be a list or reference to an array of column names or the Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column manpage-derived objects.

columns [COLUMNS]
Get or set the list of columns that make up the unique key. COLUMNS must a list or reference to an array of column names or the Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column manpage-derived objects.

This method returns all of the columns that make up the unique key. Each column is a the Rose::DB::Object::Metadata::Column manpage-derived column object if the unique key's parent has a column object with the same name, or just the column name otherwise. In scalar context, a reference to an array of columns is returned. In list context, a list is returned.

column_names
Returns a list (in list context) or reference to an array (in scalar context) of the names of the columns that make up the unique key.

delete_columns
Delete the entire list of columns that make up the unique key.

name [NAME]
Get or set the name of the unique key. This name should be unique among all unique keys for a given table. Traditionally, it is the name of the index that the database uses to maintain the unique key, but practices vary. If left undefined, the default value is a string created by joining the column_names with underscores.

parent [META]
Get or set the the Rose::DB::Object::Metadata manpage-derived object that this unique key belongs to.
