Switch from DBI to DBIx::Class: thoughts?by frew (Acolyte)
|on Mar 16, 2009 at 20:41 UTC||Need Help??|
frew has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been using an ORM (DBIx::Class) on a new project at work and I've been bitten by the bug. I think that using an ORM would solve a lot of the maintainability issues that we are having with another long term project. So with that in mind I thought it would be nice to gradually convert from vanilla DBI and inline SQL to using DBIx::Class models.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to go about migrating to an ORM? Is it worth the (significant) effort? Can we start small and only do files we touch after a certain date?
I'd appreciate any tips at all.
