in thread DBD Drivers query

Without reading up too much about why DBD::Proxy may be choking on the data_sources call, I did find that DBD::Proxy should not have any effect on Mysql. From the DBD::Proxy documentation:

DBD::Proxy is a Perl module for connecting to a database via a remote DBI driver.

This is of course not needed for DBI drivers which already support connecting to a remote database, but there are engines which don't offer network connectivity.

I would suggest limiting your data_sources method calls to only driver(s) that your are going to use. For example, use a conditional such as if ($driver eq 'mysql') so that only the mysql driver is queried for data_sources.

    That is what i have done.

    Also note that DBD::Multiplex also has a problem with datasources!!
