75    =head2 XML Database Description
76    
77    =head3 Data Types
78    
79    The ERDB system supports the following data types. Note that there are numerous string
80    types depending on the maximum length. Some database packages limit the total number of
81    characters you have in an index key; to insure the database works in all environments,
82    the type of string should be the shortest one possible that supports all the known values.
83    
84    =over 4
85    
86    =item char
87    
88    single ASCII character
89    
90    =item int
91    
92    32-bit signed integer
93    
94    =item date
95    
96    64-bit unsigned integer, representing a PERL date/time value
97    
98    =item text
99    
100    long string; Text fields cannot be used in indexes or sorting and do not support the
101    normal syntax of filter clauses, but can be up to a billion character in length
102    
103    =item float
104    
105    double-precision floating-point number
106    
107    =item boolean
108    
109    single-bit numeric value; The value is stored as a 16-bit signed integer (for
110    compatability with certain database packages), but the only values supported are
111    0 and 1.
112    
113    =item id-string
114    
115    variable-length string, maximum 25 characters
116    
117    =item key-string
118    
119    variable-length string, maximum 40 characters
120    
121    =item name-string
122    
123    variable-length string, maximum 80 characters
124    
125    =item medium-string
126    
127    variable-length string, maximum 160 characters
128    
129    =item string
130    
131    variable-length string, maximum 255 characters
132    
133    =item hash-string
134    
135    variable-length string, maximum 22 characters
136    
137    =back
138    
139    The hash-string data type has a special meaning. The actual key passed into the loader will
140    be a string, but it will be digested into a 22-character MD5 code to save space. Although the
141    MD5 algorithm is not perfect, it is extremely unlikely two strings will have the same
142    digest. Therefore, it is presumed the keys will be unique. When the database is actually
143    in use, the hashed keys will be presented rather than the original values. For this reason,
144    they should not be used for entities where the key is meaningful.
145    
146    =head3 Global Tags
147    
148    The entire database definition must be inside a B<Database> tag. The display name of
149    the database is given by the text associated with the B<Title> tag. The display name
150    is only used in the automated documentation. It has no other effect. The entities and
151    relationships are listed inside the B<Entities> and B<Relationships> tags,
152    respectively. None of these tags have attributes.
153    
154        <Database>
155            <Title>... display title here...</Title>
156            <Entities>
157                ... entity definitions here ...
158            </Entities>
159            <Relationships>
160                ... relationship definitions here...
161            </Relationships>
162        </Database>
163    
164    Entities, relationships, indexes, and fields all allow a text tag called B<Notes>.
165    The text inside the B<Notes> tag contains comments that will appear when the database
166    documentation is generated. Within a B<Notes> tag, you may use C<[i]> and C<[/i]> for
167    italics, C<[b]> and C<[/b]> for bold, and C<[p]> for a new paragraph.
168    
169    =head3 Fields
170    
171    Both entities and relationships have fields described by B<Field> tags. A B<Field>
172    tag can have B<Notes> associated with it. The complete set of B<Field> tags for an
173    object mus be inside B<Fields> tags.
174    
175        <Entity ... >
176            <Fields>
177                ... Field tags ...
178            </Fields>
179        </Entity>
180    
181    The attributes for the B<Field> tag are as follows.
182    
183    =over 4
184    
185    =item name
186    
187    Name of the field. The field name should contain only letters, digits, and hyphens (C<->),
188    and the first character should be a letter. Most underlying databases are case-insensitive
189    with the respect to field names, so a best practice is to use lower-case letters only.
190    
191    =item type
192    
193    Data type of the field. The legal data types are given above.
194    
195    =item relation
196    
197    Name of the relation containing the field. This should only be specified for entity
198    fields. The ERDB system does not support optional fields or multi-occurring fields
199    in the primary relation of an entity. Instead, they are put into secondary relations.
200    So, for example, in the C<Genome> entity, the C<group-name> field indicates a special
201    grouping used to select a subset of the genomes. A given genome may not be in any
202    groups or may be in multiple groups. Therefore, C<group-name> specifies a relation
203    value. The relation name specified must be a valid table name. By convention, it is
204    usually the entity name followed by a qualifying word (e.g. C<GenomeGroup>). In an
205    entity, the fields without a relation attribute are said to belong to the
206    I<primary relation>. This relation has the same name as the entity itself.
207    
208    =back
209    
210    =head3 Indexes
211    
212    An entity can have multiple alternate indexes associated with it. The fields must
213    be from the primary relation. The alternate indexes assist in ordering results
214    from a query. A relationship can have up to two indexes-- a I<to-index> and a
215    I<from-index>. These order the results when crossing the relationship. For
216    example, in the relationship C<HasContig> from C<Genome> to C<Contig>, the
217    from-index would order the contigs of a ganome, and the to-index would order
218    the genomes of a contig. A relationship's index must specify only fields in
219    the relationship.
220    
221    The indexes for an entity must be listed inside the B<Indexes> tag. The from-index
222    of a relationship is specified using the B<FromIndex> tag; the to-index is specified
223    using the B<ToIndex> tag.
224    
225    Each index can contain a B<Notes> tag. In addition, it will have an B<IndexFields>
226    tag containing the B<IndexField> tags. These specify, in order, the fields used in
227    the index. The attributes of an B<IndexField> tag are as follows.
228    
229    =over 4
230    
231    =item name
232    
233    Name of the field.
234    
235    =item order
236    
237    Sort order of the field-- C<ascending> or C<descending>.
238    
239    =back
240    
241    The B<Index>, B<FromIndex>, and B<ToIndex> tags themselves have no attributes.
242    
243    =head3 Object and Field Names
244    
245    By convention entity and relationship names use capital casing (e.g. C<Genome> or
246    C<HasRegionsIn>. Most underlying databases, however, are aggressively case-insensitive
247    with respect to relation names, converting them internally to all-upper case or
248    all-lower case.
249    
250    If syntax or parsing errors occur when you try to load or use an ERDB database, the
251    most likely reason is that one of your objects has an SQL reserved word as its name.
252    The list of SQL reserved words keeps increasing; however, most are unlikely to show
253    up as a noun or declarative verb phrase. The exceptions are C<Group>, C<User>,
254    C<Table>, C<Index>, C<Object>, C<Date>, C<Number>, C<Update>, C<Time>, C<Percent>,
255    C<Memo>, C<Order>, and C<Sum>. This problem can crop up in field names as well.
256    
257    Every entity has a field called C<id> that acts as its primary key. Every relationship
258    has fields called C<from-link> and C<to-link> that contain copies of the relevant
259    entity IDs. These are essentially ERDB's reserved words, and should not be used
260    for user-defined field names.
261    
262    =head3 Entities
263    
264    An entity is described by the B<Entity> tag. The entity can contain B<Notes>, an
265    B<Indexes> tag containing one or more secondary indexes, and a B<Fields> tag
266    containing one or more fields. The attributes of the B<Entity> tag are as follows.
267    
268    =over 4
269    
270    =item name
271    
272    Name of the entity. The entity name, by convention, uses capital casing (e.g. C<Genome>
273    or C<GroupBlock>) and should be a noun or noun phrase.
274    
275    =item keyType
276    
277    Data type of the primary key. The primary key is always named C<id>.
278    
279    =back
280    
281    =head3 Relationships
282    
283    A relationship is described by the C<Relationship> tag. Within a relationship,
284    there can be a C<Notes> tag, a C<Fields> tag containing the intersection data
285    fields, a C<FromIndex> tag containing the from-index, and a C<ToIndex> tag containing
286    the to-index.
287    
288    The C<Relationship> tag has the following attributes.
289    
290    =over 4
291    
292    =item name
293    
294    Name of the relationship. The relationship name, by convention, uses capital casing
295    (e.g. C<ContainsRegionIn> or C<HasContig>), and should be a declarative verb
296    phrase, designed to fit between the from-entity and the to-entity (e.g.
297    Block C<ContainsRegionIn> Genome).
298    
299    =item from
300    
301    Name of the entity from which the relationship starts.
302    
303    =item to
304    
305    Name of the entity to which the relationship proceeds.
306    
307    =item arity
308    
309    Relationship type: C<1M> for one-to-many and C<MM> for many-to-many.
