in thread Perl with Database connection.

Is it you are telling that both the method are same?

I have been using the ping method from the DBI module every time I execute a Postgresql query.

    Essentially. Keep a connection open is only better under high traffic (like perlmonks)

    hello ree,
    I am not asking which method you are using.I need to know creating the many connection is better or creating a single connection(global) is better.I need to know will it cause any data base and performance issue.

      Santhosh_89,

      I support ping method man.

      Update

      Instead of connecting to the database every time when you execute the query, you connect with the database and by calling the ping method from DBI you can check the database connectivity, if the connection is alive, execute the query otherwise call the connect function and create database connection.

        Dear ree
        Ok,It is used for checking the connection is alive or not. I want to know which logic is better(global connection or multiple connection).I hope that you will understand now.
