Correct.
But for standards (and to make it a bit more readable), it might be better to write it like this, although it's also a matter of taste :)
sub new { my $classname = shift; my %arg= ( _server => undef, _database => undef, _hSession => undef, _hDatabase} => undef, @_, ); my $self = {}; # note this corresponds whith $this in your code. bless $self, $classname; $self->{_server} = $arg{_server}; $self->{_database} = $arg{_database}; $self->{_hSession} = $arg{_hSession}; $self->{_hDatabase} = $arg{_hDatabase}; return $self; }
