I feel immune to orm fever
I've been using ORMs and watching ORM fever way before Class::DBI
. There was a BingoX::Carbon
. And Matthew Simon Ryan Cavaletto has always been trailblazer in the ORM world with his DBIx::DBO2
But I guess I dont see so much advantage in it. I can see how Dave with his HTML::Mason orientation would like to embed Perl in his mason components and get his database work done that way. But I'm a HTML::Seamstress guy. I separate things. And I like to think in SQL.
And Juerd has had the perfect product for a long time for us SQL-oriented Perl database guys - DBIx::Simple. It's simple, straightforward and a pleasure to use.
inlining perl in html
Juerd also authored a simple but attractive solution for this. I dont do things that way, but if I did, I again would reach for a fairly unknown product - PLP
He's a great guy, provides free hosting for Perl6 development. Puts lots of time into free help on the EFNet Perl IRC channel. All around class act. Check out his software.
