  • Don't forget the DBI abstraction layer :-)
    • Yeah, I've noticed this one too. I can understand having a Class to create the DBI handle (no need to remember pwords, usernames, etc), but it seems that everywhere I've worked people want to replace DBI's methods with their own (which simply wrap the basic ones). DBI has everything I've ever wanted to do with a database, and then some. Using DBI makes it easier for new people to come in and know exactly what's going on, without having to understand someone else's idea of what database access *should* be.
