Description : Database connection caching and organization
Ima::DBI attempts to organize and facilitate caching and more
efficient use of database connections and statement handles.
One of the things that can be annoying about writing large programs
with DBI is making sure that you do not have duplicate database
handles open. There is also the issue of the somewhat wasteful nature
of the prepare/execute/finish route that users tend to go through.
The new DBI->connect_cached and DBI->prepare_cached help a lot, but
you still have to throw around global information about the data
source, username and password.
So, after a while the author grew a small library of DBI helper
routines and techniques. Ima::DBI is the culmination of all this,
put into a nice(?), clean(?) class to be inherited from.
