Module/Build/DB version 0.11 ============================ This module subclasses Module::Build to provide added functionality for configuring, building, and testing database-backed applications. It uses a simple Rails-style numbered migration scheme, although migration scripts are written in pure SQL, not Perl. Frankly, this isn't a great module. Some reasons: * The numbered method of tracking migration dependencies has very little flexibility. * Subclassing Module::Build is a really bad way to extend the build system, because you can't really mix in other build features. Someday, I hope to fix the first issue by looking more closely at [database change management](http://www.justatheory.com/computers/databases/change-management.html), and perhaps by adopting a [completely different approach](http://www.depesz.com/index.php/2010/08/22/versioning/). The latter problem I would likely solve by completely separating the migration code from the build system, and then integrating as appropriate (hopefully Module::Build will get proper plugins someday). But in the meantime, I have working code that depends on this simple implementation (which does support [PostgreSQL](http://www.postgresql.org/), [SQLite](http://www.sqlite.org/) and [MySQL](ttp://www.mysql.com/)), and I want it to be easy for people to get at this dependency. So here we are.
