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.

[Corion]: Meh, first round of escalations for me not wanting to fix in production what a project has mismanaged. Now another project, which eats up all the resources until end of this year wants to take that task and put it on my list of things as well.
[Corion]: So now there will be the fun of me explaining to the project that $other_project had low priority because $project has high priority. If $project picks up the task from $other_project, they also will need to reprioritize my tasks to get that done...
[Corion]: ... of course at the cost of something else on my list of tasks for $project, as there only is a finite amount of days until $deadline.
