in reply to Thread Design help

Whenever I need parallelism and nonblocking applications, I look at POE. Most likely that someone else before me has tackled my problem and actually turned the solution into a great POE module.

In your case this one may help:
POE::Component::Pool::DBI

You might still need a threading solution and it mixes well with POE, at least in my GUI apps.

Also, I have to say that BrowserUK always manages to turn cumbersome Perl threads into an art form.
