=begin pod =head1 NAME DBDI - A Database Driver Interface for Perl 6 =head1 DESCRIPTION The DBDI project is a Database Driver Manager and Database Driver Implementation Framework for Perl 6. It is not a DBI. It is a robust and feature-rich foundation for the implementation of application level database interfaces like DBI. The API is closely modeled on the Java JDBC API. So closely, in fact, that we plan to be able to use the JDBC documentation as our primary documentation for the DBDI API, and the JDBC test suite (in some form) as our test suite. =head1 STATUS Code for DBDI was first written in July 2010 using role definitions generated by the java2perl6api tool. A basic PostgreSQL driver was added using the Perl 6 Zavolaj native call interface. A basic Perl5 DBI driver was added using the Perl 6 Blitzkost project to communicate with an embedded perl5 interpreter. Any Perl 5 DBI driver can be used from Perl 6 (though with limited functionality at the moment). See the TODO file: http://github.com/timbunce/DBDI/blob/master/TODO A screencast of a talk about DBDI, given at YAPC::EU in August 2010, is available at L<http://timbunce.blip.tv/file/3973550/> and the slides are available at L<http://www.slideshare.net/Tim.Bunce/perl6-dbdi-yapceu-201008> =cut
