Accessing PostgreSQL from Perl


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.
