DBIx::DBStag::Cookbook 0.08 reviewDownload
DBIx::DBStag::Cookbook is a Perl module for building and querying databases from XML.
This will give an outline of how to build a normalised relational database from XML source data, set up SQL templates, issue relational queries that return hierarchical results (as XML or as perl objects), and autogenerate a web query front end for this data.
Why would you want to do this? Well, it gives you the full power of the relational model and SQL, combined with the convenience of representations which allow for the nesting of data entities (SQL query results are typically flat relations which are inconvenient for complex hierarchical data).
