( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I really wanted to like Class::DBI; but if you actually use your database relationally, it gets in the way too much.

Yes, this is actually the biggest of the wrinkles I was talking about in my node. Complex operations end up being processed in the client instead of within the database, as it should be.

(...) anything that involves multiple joins, f.ex., is at best difficult to express. I instead frequently found myself grepping and mapping through lists of result objects; which is just a waste.

Precisely. And although I haven't looked into this yet, I am quite sure it is possible to express these relations and let the object hierarchy sort the proper SQL statements to generate so as to minimize the amount of data fetched.

I have the impression that Class::DBI is a step in the right direction, but more control is needed. I think that improving the statement generation would be a big step.

Best regards

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
