Perl DBI?


#1

I thought I read somewhere that you were switching to Perl/DBI for the database
integration in V2? I hope so, I have some experience with DBI and feel more
comfortable hacking around in perl and DBI. I think that Linux/Perl
DBI/MySQL/Apache makes a killer combination for web services, and these are
beginning to show up in help wanted ads (My true test of popularity).

Thanks,

Absolutely.

Don’t forget ModPerl. We’re optimizing RT2 for Apache/ModPerl and MySQL,
but it will be fairly easy to port it to other systems. For instance, I’m
not using ModPerl myself.
