in reply to DB persistence framework for Perl Classes

How does this differ from using Hibernate and similar tools?

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.

    I can be wrong, but Hibernate is for Java, not?

    And don't forget that in Java you need to do by hand your serialization of attributes. Only for J2SE 5 we have a new project called JDO that make things more automatic, and it will replace JDBC.

      Not quite: JDO (Java Data Objects) is also available for J2SE 1.4 (and below perhaps). Furthermore, JDO is not intended as a replacement for JDBC! It is simply a persistent object store framework, mainly aimed at storing business objects. It therefore cannot (and will not) replace JDBC (which is just a means to hereogenously connect to different databases).
