Defined in:

ext/sqlite3/database.c

Overview

The Database class encapsulates a single connection to a SQLite3 database. Its usage is very straightforward:

require 'sqlite3'

SQLite3::Database.new( "data.db" ) do |db|
  db.execute( "select * from table" ) do |row|
    p row
  end
end

It wraps the lower-level methods provides by the selected driver, and includes the Pragmas module for access to various pragma convenience methods.

The Database class provides type translation services as well, by which the SQLite3 data types (which are all represented as strings) may be converted into their corresponding types (as defined in the schemas for their tables). This translation only occurs when querying data from the database–insertions and updates are all still typeless.

Furthermore, the Database class has been designed to work well with the ArrayFields module from Ara Howard. If you require the ArrayFields module before performing a query, and if you have not enabled results as hashes, then the results will all be indexible by field name.

Constructor Details

#initialize(file, options = {}, zvfs = nil) ⇒ Database

call-seq: SQLite3::Database.new(file, options = {})

Create a new Database object that opens the given file. If utf16 is true, the filename is interpreted as a UTF-16 encoded string.

By default, the new database will return result rows as arrays (#results_as_hash) and has type translation disabled (#type_translation=).

def authorizer( &block )
  self.authorizer = block
end

#set_authorizer=(auth) ⇒ Object

Set the authorizer for this database. auth must respond to call, and call must take 5 arguments.

Installs (or removes) a block that will be invoked for every access to the database. If the block returns 0 (or true), the statement is allowed to proceed. Returning 1 or false causes an authorization error to occur, and returning 2 or nil causes the access to be silently denied.

#busy_handler {|count| ... } ⇒ Object #busy_handler(Class.new{) ⇒ Object

Register a busy handler with this database instance. When a requested resource is busy, this handler will be invoked. If the handler returns false, the operation will be aborted; otherwise, the resource will be requested again.

The handler will be invoked with the name of the resource that was busy, and the number of times it has been retried.

See also the mutually exclusive #busy_timeout.

#create_aggregate(name, arity, step = nil, finalize = nil, text_rep = Constants::TextRep::ANY, &block) ⇒ Object

Creates a new aggregate function for use in SQL statements. Aggregate functions are functions that apply over every row in the result set, instead of over just a single row. (A very common aggregate function is the “count” function, for determining the number of rows that match a query.)

The new function will be added as name, with the given arity. (For variable arity functions, use -1 for the arity.)

The step parameter must be a proc object that accepts as its first parameter a FunctionProxy instance (representing the function invocation), with any subsequent parameters (up to the function's arity). The step callback will be invoked once for each row of the result set.

The finalize parameter must be a proc object that accepts only a single parameter, the FunctionProxy instance representing the current function invocation. It should invoke FunctionProxy#result= to store the result of the function.

Example:

db.create_aggregate( "lengths", 1 ) do
  step do |func, value|
    func[ :total ] ||= 0
    func[ :total ] += ( value ? value.length : 0 )
  end

  finalize do |func|
    func.result = func[ :total ] || 0
  end
end

puts db.get_first_value( "select lengths(name) from table" )

See also #create_aggregate_handler for a more object-oriented approach to aggregate functions.

#create_aggregate_handler(handler) ⇒ Object

This is another approach to creating an aggregate function (see #create_aggregate). Instead of explicitly specifying the name, callbacks, arity, and type, you specify a factory object (the “handler”) that knows how to obtain all of that information. The handler should respond to the following messages:

arity

corresponds to the arity parameter of #create_aggregate. This message is optional, and if the handler does not respond to it, the function will have an arity of -1.

name

this is the name of the function. The handler must implement this message.

new

this must be implemented by the handler. It should return a new instance of the object that will handle a specific invocation of the function.

The handler instance (the object returned by the new message, described above), must respond to the following messages:

step

this is the method that will be called for each step of the aggregate function's evaluation. It should implement the same signature as the step callback for #create_aggregate.

finalize

this is the method that will be called to finalize the aggregate function's evaluation. It should implement the same signature as the finalize callback for #create_aggregate.

Example:

class LengthsAggregateHandler
  def self.arity; 1; end
  def self.name; 'lengths'; end

  def initialize
    @total = 0
  end

  def step( ctx, name )
    @total += ( name ? name.length : 0 )
  end

  def finalize( ctx )
    ctx.result = @total
  end
end

db.create_aggregate_handler( LengthsAggregateHandler )
puts db.get_first_value( "select lengths(name) from A" )

#create_function(name, arity, text_rep = Constants::TextRep::UTF8, &block) ⇒ Object

Creates a new function for use in SQL statements. It will be added as name, with the given arity. (For variable arity functions, use -1 for the arity.)

The block should accept at least one parameter–the FunctionProxy instance that wraps this function invocation–and any other arguments it needs (up to its arity).

The block does not return a value directly. Instead, it will invoke the FunctionProxy#result= method on the func parameter and indicate the return value that way.

Example:

db.create_function( "maim", 1 ) do |func, value|
  if value.nil?
    func.result = nil
  else
    func.result = value.split(//).sort.join
  end

end

#define_aggregator(name, aggregator) ⇒ Object

Define an aggregate function named name using a object template object aggregator. aggregator must respond to step and finalize. step will be called with row information and finalize must return the return value for the aggregator function.

_API Change:_ aggregator must also implement clone. The provided aggregator object will serve as template that is cloned to provide the individual instances of the aggregate function. Regular ruby objects already provide a suitable clone. The functions arity is the arity of the step method.

#execute(sql, bind_vars = [], *args, &block) ⇒ Object

Executes the given SQL statement. If additional parameters are given, they are treated as bind variables, and are bound to the placeholders in the query.

Note that if any of the values passed to this are hashes, then the key/value pairs are each bound separately, with the key being used as the name of the placeholder to bind the value to.

The block is optional. If given, it will be invoked for each row returned by the query. Otherwise, any results are accumulated into an array and returned wholesale.

See also #execute2, #query, and #execute_batch for additional ways of executing statements.

#execute2(sql, *bind_vars) ⇒ Object

Executes the given SQL statement, exactly as with #execute. However, the first row returned (either via the block, or in the returned array) is always the names of the columns. Subsequent rows correspond to the data from the result set.

Thus, even if the query itself returns no rows, this method will always return at least one row–the names of the columns.

#execute_batch(sql, bind_vars = [], *args) ⇒ Object

Executes all SQL statements in the given string. By contrast, the other means of executing queries will only execute the first statement in the string, ignoring all subsequent statements. This will execute each one in turn. The same bind parameters, if given, will be applied to each statement.

This always returns nil, making it unsuitable for queries that return rows.

Executes all SQL statements in the given string. By contrast, the other means of executing queries will only execute the first statement in the string, ignoring all subsequent statements. This will execute each one in turn. Bind parameters cannot be passed to #execute_batch2.

If a query is made, all values will be returned as strings. If no query is made, an empty array will be returned.

Because all values except for 'NULL' are returned as strings, a block can be passed to parse the values accordingly.

result = db.prepare( "select * from foo where a=?" ).execute( 5 )

You must be sure to call close on the ResultSet instance that is returned, or you could have problems with locks on the table. If called with a block, close will be invoked implicitly when the block terminates.

#transaction(mode = :deferred) ⇒ Object

Begins a new transaction. Note that nested transactions are not allowed by SQLite, so attempting to nest a transaction will result in a runtime exception.

The mode parameter may be either :deferred (the default), :immediate, or :exclusive.

If a block is given, the database instance is yielded to it, and the transaction is committed when the block terminates. If the block raises an exception, a rollback will be performed instead. Note that if a block is given, #commit and #rollback should never be called explicitly or you'll get an error when the block terminates.

If a block is not given, it is the caller's responsibility to end the transaction explicitly, either by calling #commit, or by calling #rollback.

Return the type translator employed by this database instance. Each database instance has its own type translator; this allows for different type handlers to be installed in each instance without affecting other instances. Furthermore, the translators are instantiated lazily, so that if a database does not use type translation, it will not be burdened by the overhead of a useless type translator. (See the Translator class.)
