in reply to Sharing database handle

It's not wise, and it won't always work. Some databases, Oracle specifically though there may be others, will fail horribly if you try this--the data behind the handle is process-specific, and handles won't work right if at all when you try this.

    well, this <emph>only</emph> implies that you'll have to devote a process (either the father or one of the siblings) handle the handle (bad pun, sorry) and the (other) children will have to talk with that process to use the connection.

    IIRC, that's the way Apache::DBI works.

      No, Apache::DBI doesn't do any inter-process communication. It's dirt simple. It just opens a separate database handle in each process and keeps it open.
