DBIx::Class ORM Now Supports Sybase ASE

The DBIx::Class Perl ORM (http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?DBIx::Class) now supports Sybase ASE (http://www.sybase.com/products/databasemanagement/adaptiveserverenterprise).

Documentation for the driver here: http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?DBIx::Class::Storage::DBI::Sybase::ASE.

Features:

  • placeholder support with emulated last_insert_id, or queries without placeholders
  • seamless TEXT/IMAGE column support (blobs)
  • bulk API support (when using ->populate in void context)
  • support for connecting via FreeTDS (http://www.freetds.org), as much as possible

There are still some TODOs, which may or may not get done depending on interest, but it's well tested and ready for serious use.
