in reply to Building Enterprise Web Applications with Maypole

Is it possible to use some other database package besides DBI with Maypole ?

    I would imagine that if you wrapped your other database package so it worked like DBI then you could do that. What other database package are you hoping to use? DBI is the central module for nearly all perl database interactions and in general it is foolhardy to use RDBMSes without using DBI.
      We use Sybase::DBlib.
        You should probably ask the Maypole list about that. My guess is that either you'll need to port your application to use DBI or write a wrapper so your database appears to be a DBI.
        You should seriously consider migrating off of Sybase::DBlib, as DB-Library is being phased out by Sybase (no new functionality, etc.) Sybase::CTlib, Sybase::Simple and of course DBI/DBD::Sybase are the modules to use so that the underlying access method used is Sybase's Client Library.
