Hi All,

Another newbie question about the "Can't find source for XXX" error message.

I've been able to establish a connection to my MySQL DB by specifying a storage 
type for my Schema,
but I keep getting the "Can't find source for XXX" error message when I try 
searching the table XXX.

In my Schema object I have :


and the usual "use base qw(DBIx::Class::Schema);

so that methods are correctly inherited from DBIx::Class::Schema.

Then I have a new constructor in my Schema object which blesses my object in 
the namespace I need it in:

sub new {
    my ($proto, $db) = @_;
    my $class = ref($proto) || $proto;
    my $self = bless {}, $class;

    return $self->connect($dsn, $dbuser, $dbpw, { AutoCommit => 1});

where $db is the MySQL DB I need to access and $dbuser, $dbpw are local 
variables containing the usual User and PW.

and $dsn = "dbi:mysql:database=$db";

I've checked the object returned by the constructor and it has the expected 

class_mappings => { 'X::Y::Z::Result::Table1' => 'Table1', 
                    'X::Y::Z::Result::Table2' => 'Table2',

source_registrations => {
                          'Table1' => bless( { 'result_class' => 
                                               'resultset_class' => 
                                               'name' => 'Table1',
                                               'source_name' => 'Table1',


storage => { '_connect_info' => [ 'dbi:mysql:database=VSO',
                                    'AutoCommit' => 1
             '_conn_pid' => 10779,


I see an entry in source_registrations for each of the tables in the DB VSO, 
all with their correct columns.
However, I noted that the objects are all blessed into the generic 
DBIx::Class::ResultSource::Table class and not
the X::Y::Z::ResultSource::Table1 class as I would have expected.

Is that why I am getting the "Can't find source ..." error message ?

I have a package for each table in X::Y::Z::Result namespace and additionally a 
package for the table I am testing
in both X::Y::Z::ResultSource::Table1 and X::Y::Z::ResultSet::Table1

I noted that the resultset_class key above was indeed set to my 
namespace-specific package for my test table.

Any tips or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
