If you already have production Class::DBI code, for the moment use that but 
look at porting it ASAP.

Otherwise you want to look at DBIx::Class, which seems to be the Catalyst 
user's general preference (my fault but I started it because Class::DBI kept 
forcing me to say "no" to client requests and DBIx::Class never has yet - 
whivh from a business point of view is always preferable :)

Rose::DB::Object is also dmmn good; I prefer DBIx::Class but then again I 
founmded the project, and the author of Rose::DB::Object is smart - which you 
prefer is a matter of which library best fits the way you think.
