Since I'm still in QA, currently I'm having a lot of that purple catalyst error screen whenever I did something wrong with the DBIx::Class(e.g creating a record with the wrong column name, or undefined as a parameter when searching for a record).
in reply to Perl Catalyst and DBIx::Class best practice question.
This sounds like you're not validating your input prior to passing it to your model. If so, then that's the root issue. And, frankly, it's going to be a root issue for a lot more than the PSOD.
My criteria for good software:
- Does it work?
- Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?
