Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _


 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::DB::BioSQL::Oracle::BasePersistenceAdaptorDriver->new();
 Function: Builds a new Bio::DB::BioSQL::Oracle::BasePersistenceAdaptorDriver object 
 Returns : an instance of Bio::DB::BioSQL::Oracle::BasePersistenceAdaptorDriver
 Args    :


 Title   : primary_key_name
 Usage   :
 Function: Obtain the name of the primary key attribute for the given
           table in the relational schema.

           For the oracle implementation, this is always oid (with two
           exceptions that have a virtual primary key).

 Example :
 Returns : The name of the primary key (a string)
 Args    : The name of the table (a string)


 Title   : _build_foreign_key_name
 Usage   :
 Function: Build the column name for a foreign key to the given table.

           We override this here to obtain the acronym for the table
           and then append '_oid' to it. Other than that we reuse how
           the default foreign_key_name() determines the table name.

 Example :
 Returns : The name of the foreign key column as a string
 Args    : The table name as a string


 Title   : sequence_name
 Usage   :
 Function: Returns the name of the primary key generator (SQL sequence)
           for the given table.

 Example :
 Returns : the name of the sequence (a string)
 Args    : The name of the table.


 Title   : acronym_map
 Usage   : $obj->acronym_map($newval)
 Function: Get/set the map of table names to acronyms (which the oracle
           build consistently uses across the panel).
 Example : 
 Returns : value of acronym_map (a hash ref)
 Args    : on set, new value (a hash ref or undef, optional)
