Perl DBI connect cached still active

newperldeveloper has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am doing a perl query using
my $prod_dbh = DBI->connect_cached('DBI:Sybase:database','web_','web') + || die "Couldn't connect to DB!\n" . DBI->errstr; my $parent_sth = $prod_dbh->prepare_cached('select * from table where +id = ?'); $parent_sth->bind_param(1,$id); $parent_sth->execute(); my @parent_data = $parent_sth->fetchrow_array();
If I try to do another query it fails and give an error
my $child_sth = $prod_dbh->prepare_cached('select * from table2 where +id = ?'); $child_sth->bind_param(1,$parent_data[0]); $child_sth->execute(); my @child_data = $child_sth->fetchrow_array(); print Dumper(@child_data);
Fails with statement handle DBI::st=HASH(0x1ed1280) still Active at When I add the line $parent_sth->finish(); to the first block of code. I get no data from the @child_data If I just grab the query and run it data is returned so I know the result should contain data but nothing is being returned when I dump child_data. I know it is executing the code when I print after the dumper I get my printed content. I was reading I need to

    See $if_active in perldoc DBI

    check line marked HERE in this sample of code ( since you didn't provide a Short, Self-Contained, Correct Example )

    #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; # use warnings; use DBI; my $dbfile = 'db.11123285'; unlink $dbfile; my $db = DBI->connect_cached( "DBI:SQLite(RaiseError=>1,PrintError=>0):$dbfile"); eval { $db->do('create table note (id integer primary key, ts int, mess tex +t)'); $db->do('insert into note (ts, mess) values (?, ?)', {}, 1, 'one'); $db->do('insert into note (ts, mess) values (?, ?)', {}, 2, 'two'); }; #system "sqlite3 $dbfile .dump"; my $sth = $db->prepare_cached('select * from note where id = ?'); $sth->bind_param(1, 2); $sth->execute; my @data = $sth->fetchrow_array; use Data::Dump 'dd'; dd \@data; $sth = $db->prepare_cached('select * from note where id = ?', {}, 1); +# HERE $sth->bind_param(1, 1); $sth->execute; @data = $sth->fetchrow_array; use Data::Dump 'dd'; dd \@data; unlink $dbfile; # cleanup


    [2, 2, "two"] [1, 1, "one"]

    Note that the "still Active" message does not prevent correct execution, so something else must be causing your lack of data.

      When I send in the same parameter to the second query I am getting 0 rows. Which is impossible because the first returns data. I did get the message statement handle DBI::st=HASH(0x20e3278) still Active, that is the reason I used $parent_sth->finish() thinking that would clear anything up. It gets rid of the message but the second query does not execute.

        Maybe the (Sybase) database driver doesn't like only half-fetching the resultset? Have you tried fetching the complete resultset and then issuing your second query? Something like:

        my $prod_dbh = DBI->connect_cached('DBI:Sybase:database','web_','web') + || die "Couldn't connect to DB!\n" . DBI->errstr; my $parent_sth = $prod_dbh->prepare_cached('select * from table where +id = ?'); $parent_sth->bind_param(1,$id); $parent_sth->execute(); my $parent_data = $parent_sth->fetchall_arrayref(); ... my $child_sth = $prod_dbh->prepare_cached('select * from table2 where +id = ?'); $child_sth->bind_param(1,$parent_data[0]); $child_sth->execute(); my $child_data = $child_sth->fetchall_arrayref(); print Dumper($child_data->[0]);

        Of course, with your statement handles named $parent_data and $child_data, maybe you are trying to fetch data in a parent/child relationship where you instead could be doing an SQL JOIN between the two tables to issue only a single query?

        select parent.* , child.* from table parent join table2 child on ( where = ?

        Maybe $parent_data[0] is not what you think it is...

        Try adding RaiseError=>1 like my example showed. Perhaps there is some other error you are not testing for.

        Also try using prepare instead of prepare_cached
