       SQL::Translator::Producer::XML::SQLFairy - SQLFairy's default XML format


         use SQL::Translator;

         my $t              = SQL::Translator->new(
             from           => 'MySQL',
             to             => 'XML-SQLFairy',
             filename       => 'schema.sql',

         print $t->translate;


       Creates XML output of a schema, in the flavor of XML used natively by the SQLFairy project
       (SQL::Translator). This format is detailed here.

       The XML lives in the "" namespace.  With a
       root element of <schema>.

       Objects in the schema are mapped to tags of the same name as the objects class (all

       The attributes of the objects (e.g. $field->name) are mapped to attributes of the tag,
       except for sql, comments and action, which get mapped to child data elements.

       List valued attributes (such as the list of fields in an index) get mapped to comma
       separated lists of values in the attribute.

       Child objects, such as a tables fields, get mapped to child tags wrapped in a set of
       container tags using the plural of their contained classes name.

       An objects' extra attribute (a hash of arbitrary data) is mapped to a tag called extra,
       with the hash of data as attributes, sorted into alphabetical order.


           <schema name="" database=""

               <table name="Story" order="1">
                   <field name="id" data_type="BIGINT" size="20"
                     is_nullable="0" is_auto_increment="1" is_primary_key="1"
                     is_foreign_key="0" order="3">
                     <extra ZEROFILL="1" />
                   <field name="created" data_type="datetime" size="0"
                     is_nullable="1" is_auto_increment="0" is_primary_key="0"
                     is_foreign_key="0" order="1">
                     <extra />
                   <index name="foobar" type="NORMAL" fields="foo,bar" options="" />

               <view name="email_list" fields="email" order="1">
                 <sql>SELECT email FROM Basic WHERE email IS NOT NULL</sql>


       To see a complete example of the XML translate one of your schema :)

         $ sqlt -f MySQL -t XML-SQLFairy schema.sql


           Set to true to use the default namespace prefix of 'sqlf', instead of using the
           default namespace for " namespace"


            <!-- add_prefix=0 -->
            <field name="foo" />

            <!-- add_prefix=1 -->
            <sqlf:field name="foo" />

           Set to the namespace prefix you want to use for the
           " namespace"


            <!-- prefix='foo' -->
            <foo:field name="foo" />

           If true (the default) inserts newlines around the XML, otherwise the schema is written
           on one line.

           When using newlines the number of whitespace characters to use as the indent.  Default
           is 2, set to 0 to turn off indenting.


       The previous version of the SQLFairy XML allowed the attributes of the schema objects to
       be written as either xml attributes or as data elements, in any combination. The old
       producer could produce attribute only or data element only versions. While this allowed
       for lots of flexibility in writing the XML the result is a great many possible XML
       formats, not so good for DTD writing, XPathing etc! So we have moved to a fixed version
       described above.

       This version of the producer will now only produce the new style XML.  To convert your old
       format files simply pass them through the translator :)

        $ sqlt -f XML-SQLFairy -t XML-SQLFairy schema-old.xml > schema-new.xml
