Catalyst doen't specify that - the tutorial and most developers tend towards
DBIx::Class, which is a separate project.

This is not rails. There's more than one way to do it.

It's still perl. Anything you can do in perl, you can still do in perl with
Catalyst loaded.

See above. Also, this is the dev list for the -framework- - you want the
users list I guess. See
