I canít see that it uses connect_cached; it does expose the database handle via a getter, but thereís no way to set it or to supply your own. Supplying your own would make this and more things possible; that might make a good feature request.
I haven't used DBIx::Simple (and am now looking in to it), but a quick glance at the docs has this constructor:

DBIx::Simple->connect($dbh)

I would assume this could be used to pass your own DB handle created via connect_cached.

++ for a good writeup. I'd definitely be interested on your thoughts on Class::DBI, and a comparision between it and DBIx::Simple.

    D’oh! I even wondered how it could be that Juerd would miss such an obvious and obviously useful feature, and checked the docs multiple times – but didn’t see it. Sometimes I really have a blind spot. Thanks for pointing out the blunder, I fixed my node.

    As for a comparison with Class::DBI – there’s just not much to compare. DBIx::Simple is a very thin layer on top of DBI which doesn’t fundamentally affect the way you work, it just adds a good helping of readability and makes some things a smidgen easier. So DBIx::Simple is to Class::DBI exactly as DBI also is to Class::DBI.

    Makeshifts last the longest.
