ORM for existing projects using Phrasebook

Just few questions came in mind so I thought to get some expert advice. Well, I am not an DB expert but comfortable with SQL/Perl DBI and can write queries using Phrasebook. I mostly use PostgresSQL DB. As there is a lot of discussion of ORM and many new implementations are coming using ORM techniques (e.g.; DBIx::Class etc) for DB interaction so just wondering how can I use ORM in my existing projects as I am still using DBI + Phrasebook and what benefit shall I get if I switch to ORM?

Thanks for reading!

    For existing projects, DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader comes with the dbicdump utility. Just point it at your database and it does the rest! Having done so, your Perl programs get to access Perl objects, rather than fuss with SQL directly.

      Oops, I guess this blog doesn’t allow HTML. I tried to include a link to mst’s slide, which summarizes the situation nicely, I think.

    Could I suggest you SQL::Template?
    If you have a strong SQL knowledge, it’s easy to use
