[EP-tech] Re: Subject trees

What documentation are you looking at John?  Think I'm fighting with the parameters on 'create'.  When I try the following code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w -I/opt/eprints3/perl_lib
use strict;
use EPrints;

my $ep = EPrints->new();
my $repository = $ep->repository( "repoid" );

my $tech_item = EPrints::DataObj::Subject->create($repository, "new_item_id",[{"name"=>"New Item Description"}],["parentid"],1);

I get an error message
Can't use string ("EPrints::DataObj::Subject") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/DataObj.pm line 968.

Within 'create_child' it uses $self->{subjectid} as the value for parentid, but from debugging it looks like the value is actually in $self->{data}->{subjectid}  not sure if this is me not understanding something about eprints  structure or a possible bug?

The subjects don't seem to need commit() to add them (at least via create_child - I had it in the code originally but it didn't seem to make a difference) and reindexing the subject dataset hasn't done anything.  Thanks for the ideas though.

No experience - but looking at the documentation, you could possibly achieve what you need with the 'create' method instead?

Other thoughts are:
- does anything change when you commit() the new subject?
- does reindexing the subjects change anything?

Subject: [EP-tech] Subject trees

Hi all,
Anyone have any experience with updating the subject tree via the API?   (using 3.3.10 but current github module for EPrints::DataObj::Subject looks similar)

I'm trying to add a new top level entry with the following code snippet...

                my $rootsubj = EPrints::DataObj::Subject->new($repository,"ROOT");
                exit unless defined($rootsubj);
                my $newsubj = $rootsubj->create_child("newid",[{name=>"New Top Level Subject"}],0);

It creates the subject, but orphaned rather than linked to the ROOT object as I'd expect...
Any clues?
