NAME

UR::Object::Reference - Metadata about one class referring to another

SYNOPSIS

  my $classobj = Some::Class->__meta__;
  my @refs = $classobj->reference_metas;

  my $remote_class_obj = $refs[0]->r_class_meta;

DESCRIPTION

This class implements the infrastructure metadata about how classes are linked to each other. Whenever the class initializer encounters an indirect property, a Reference object is created to denote the classes and properties involved in the link.

Instances of UR::Object::Reference are not created directly, but exist as a concequence of class metadata creation.

PROPERTIES

tha_id => Text

The ID property of UR::Object::Reference. Its value is a composite of the class name and the property name that triggered this Reference's creation.

class_name => Text

The name of the referencing class

r_class_name => Text

The name of the referenced class

delegation_name => Text

The delegated property name that triggered the creation of this Reference.

constraint_name => Text

If the delegated property was created as a result of a foreign key in a database, this contains the name of that constraint.

class_meta => UR::Object::Type

The class metaobject named by class_name

r_class_meta => UR::Object::Type

The class metaobject named by r_class_name

reference_property_metas => UR::Object::Reference::Property

The list of reference property objects belonging to this Reference
