Accessing PostgreSQL from Perl

Summary

Although there are numerous ways to use databases with Perl, in this chapter, we concentrated on the most important as far as PostgreSQL programming is concerned: the database-independent layer, DBI.

Within the scope of DBI, we have the option of easily using other database back-ends with the same client code. There is also a lot of existing DBI extension code, in the form of DBIx modules, to make our programming job simpler.

In the next chapter, we’ll explore how to access a PostgreSQL database from Java.
