  • OK, I'll bite.

    Why did you use Class::DBI, and not Rose?

    Yes, I know everything is - or ought to be - a learning exercise, but even so.....

      > Why did you use Class::DBI, and not Rose?

      Simply because that was what I was used to at the time and I was taking the path of least effort.

      I haven't had a chance to look at Rose or DBIx::Class although regardless of past Class::DBI politics, I think it fits what I want to do quite nicely.

      In particular, all I want is:

            * Get/set attributes for mapped objects
            * Search/retrieve
            * The ability to do complex SQL with ease

      And now that I've worked on a couple of projects using Class::DBI, I can bend it into all different kinds of shapes.
