I'm not familiar enough with OO to be confident in my reply, but I ran across something a while back that might interest you:

What is Tangram?

Tangram is an object-relational mapper for Perl objects. It makes objects persist in relational databases, and provides powerful facilities for retrieving and filtering them. Tangram fully supports object-oriented programming, including polymorphism, multiple inheritance and collections. It does so in an orthogonal fashion, that is, it doesn't require your classes to implement support functions nor inherit from a utility class.

    I looked into this collection of modules for a similar project where I had already built much of my object models and while the conversion of data types was fairly direct and straight-forward, documented examples proved to be incorrect and outdated and the whole experience left me software jaded with Tangram.

    In short, while Tangram is certainly an excellent modules for establishing and storing data relations, its documentation is horrid and examples erroneous in points. Approach with plenty of time to experiment ...


    Ooohhh, Rob no beer function well without!
