in reply to DB persistence framework for Perl Classes

How does this differ from very simple usages of Class::DBI?

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    Humm, in lines of code and DB portability?

      Lines of code don't matter as long as I'm not writing them.

      Portability? You can go all the way from SQLite through PostgreSQL through Oracle (we've done it) with Class::DBI. How much more portable do you want to be? Flat files? {grin}

      I won't be interested in your project unless you can give me better reasons than that. In fact, I'd actively discourage you from inventing your own shiny wheel, while not contributing to Class::DBI if you feel something is missing there.

      Be sure to read my standard disclaimer if this is a reply.

        From what I understand, Class::DBI needs a existing data-model to derive its classes from while HDB does not impose that constraint. At least, that was one of the constraints of Class::DBI when I looked at it, which has been a while ago.

      • Sincerely I have never used Class::DBI in a deep way, and I will be glad if you can show me how to do what I'm trying to do here with Class::DBI, and if I think that something is missing I will add to Class::DBI as I have added to other modules.

        About lines of code, well, for me lines matters, specially for Perl, since we don't have a nice IDE with wizards like in Java were we really don't need to write things. Perl means write your own code.

        And about the portability of Class::DBI, I can be wrong, but you are saying to me that DBI is portable over databases. Well, the SQL is not.

        About my time, I'm paid to create components that help our development.
