Catalyst::Model::LDAP:UserrContributed Perl DocCatalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry(3)

NAME
       Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry - Convenience methods for Net::LDAP::Entry

SYNOPSIS
	   # In	your controller
	   my $mesg = $c->model('Person')->search('(cn=Lou Rhodes)');
	   my $entry = $mesg->shift_entry;
	   print $entry->title;

DESCRIPTION
       This module simplifies use of Net::LDAP::Entry objects in your
       application.  It	makes accessors	and mutators for all attributes	on an
       entry.  For example:

	   print $entry->cn;

       It also stores a	reference to the parent	LDAP connection, simplifying
       updates to the entry:

	   $entry->title('Folk singer');
	   $entry->update;

ADDING ENTRY METHODS
       If you want to provide your own methods on an LDAP entry, you can use
       the "entry_class" configuration variable.  For example:

	   # In	lib/MyApp/Model/LDAP.pm
	   package MyApp::Model::LDAP;
	   use base qw/Catalyst::Model::LDAP/;

	   __PACKAGE__->config(
	       # ...
	       entry_class => 'MyApp::LDAP::Entry',
	   );

	   1;

	   # In	lib/MyApp/LDAP/Entry.pm
	   package MyApp::LDAP::Entry;
	   use base qw/Catalyst::Model::LDAP::Entry/;
	   use DateTime::Format::Strptime;

	   sub get_date	{
	       my ($self, $attribute) =	@_;

	       my ($datetime) =	($self->get_value($attribute) =~ /^(\d{14})/);

	       my $parser = DateTime::Format::Strptime->new(
		   pattern     => '%Y%m%d%H%M%S',
		   locale      => 'en_US',
		   time_zone   => 'UTC'
	       );

	       return $parser->parse_datetime($datetime);
	   }

	   1;

METHODS
   new
       Override	the Net::LDAP::Entry object constructor	to take	an optional
       LDAP handle.  If	provided this will be used automatically on "update".

   update
       Override	"update" to default to the optional LDAP handle	provided to
       the constructor.

   can
       Override	"can" to declare existence of the LDAP entry attribute methods
       from "AUTOLOAD".
