  • Hi Ovid,

    Your example doesn't sound right to me. The job of a server is to serve requests; the job of an ORM is to give access to some persistence methods; merging both responsibilities into a single class, be it through inheritance or through roles, is confusing. I would rather have a ServerInfo class that keeps the persistent data, and a Server class that deals with requests, with a "has-a" relationship between them (and then it doesn't matter through which mechanism such classes are composed).

    Besides, I agree that instances of DBIx::Class have too many methods, but that's not a consequence of using inheritance, it's a consequence of the particular DBIx::Class design, which is another mix of responsabilities : datasources and resultsets are merged into one single concept.
