Testing with databases can be tricky. If you are developing a system married to a single database then you can make some assumptions about your environment and ask the user to provide relevant connection information. But if you need to test a framework that uses DBI, particularly a framework that uses different types of persistence schemes, then it may be more useful to simply verify what the framework is trying to do -- ensure the right SQL is generated and that the correct parameters are bound. 'DBD::Mock' makes it easy to just modify your configuration (presumably held outside your code) and just use it instead of 'DBD::Foo' (like the DBD::Pg manpage or the DBD::mysql manpage) in your framework. There is no distinct area where using this module makes sense. (Some people may successfully argue that this is a solution looking for a problem...) Indeed, if you can assume your users have something like the DBD::AnyData manpage or the DBD::SQLite manpage or if you do not mind creating a dependency on them then it makes far more sense to use these legitimate driver implementations and test your application in the real world -- at least as much of the real world as you can create in your tests... And if your database handle exists as a package variable or something else easily replaced at test-time then it may make more sense to use the Test::MockObject manpage to create a fully dynamic handle. There is an excellent article by chromatic about using the Test::MockObject manpage in this and other ways, strongly recommended. (See the SEE ALSO manpage for a link)
