in reply to Switch from DBI to DBIx::Class: thoughts?
The only thing that bothers me about DBIx::Class is, the last time I used it, when the operations you needed surpassed a certain level of complexity, you ended up still passing in SQL syntax in scalar references at certain points, for example when I wanted to select for a column which was within a particular range of values (dates). If you get to that point, you're losing out on the benefit of the abstraction because now you have to have familiarity with the plain SQL as well as the DBIx::Class abstraction. However, I don't know that my experience was typical, or even if I was doing things the right way. YMMV.
