       Catalyst::Model::DBI - DBI Model Class


         # use the helper to create a model for example
         perl script/ model MyModel DBI dsn username password

         # lib/MyApp/Model/
         package MyApp::Model::DBI;

         use base 'Catalyst::Model::DBI';

           dsn           => 'DBI:Pg:dbname=mydb;host=localhost',
           username      => 'pgsql',
           password      => '',
           options       => { AutoCommit => 1 },
           loglevel      => 1


         # or load settings from a config file via Config::General for example
         # in your myapp.conf you could have

         name MyApp

           dsn "DBI:Pg:dbname=mydb;host=localhost"
           username pgsql
           password ""
             AutoCommit 1
           loglevel 1

         # note that config settings always override Model settings

         # do something with $dbh inside a controller ...
         my $dbh = $c->model('MyModel')->dbh;

         # do something with $dbh inside a model ...
         my $dbh = $self->dbh;

         #do something with DBIx::Connector connection inside a controller ...
         my $connection = $c->model('MyModel')->connection;

         #do something with DBIx::Connector connection inside a model ...
         my $connection = $self->connection;


       This is the "DBI" model class. It has been rewritten to use DBIx::Connector since it's
       internal code that deals with connection maintenance has already been ported into there.
       You now have two options for doing custom models with Catalyst. Either by using this model
       and any related modules as needed or by having your custom model decoupled from Catalyst
       and glued on using Catalyst::Model::Adaptor

       Some general rules are as follows. If you do not wish to use DBIx::Connector directly or
       DBI and setup connections in your custom models or have glue models, then use this model.
       If you however need models that can be re-used outside of your application or simply wish
       to maintain connection code yourself outside of the Catalyst, then use
       Catalyst::Model::Adaptor which allows you to glue outside models into your Catalyst app.


       new Initializes DBI connection

           Returns the current DBIx::Connector connection handle.

           Returns the current database handle.

           Connects to the database and returns the handle.
