Re: Is there no single/uniform RDBMS access API module for Python ?

On Mon, May 12, 2008 at 1:45 AM, Banibrata Dutta
<ba************ *@gmail.comwrot e:
Based on this URL http://wiki.python.org/moin/DatabaseInterfaces , is
it correct to conclude that there is no RDBMS agnostic, single/uniform DB
access API for Python ?
Something in the lines of JDBC for Java, DBD for Perl etc. ?
How is the RDBMS change handled for solutions which need to work with
different RDBMSs ??

That appears to be only an API specification. Are there any implementations
of that ?
You might want to take a look at Dabo (http://dabodev.com). They have
a backend-agnostic interface for working with different databases. I
don't do database apps myself, so I can't comment on how well it
works, but based on the comments of others on the Dabo email lists, it
seems as though it works well enough.

wondering what python resources might be available for python-based legacy system access, particularly to MVS, DB2 and Adabas. What additional pieces might be needed to implement this access? Python would be running on Unix and need to do Adabas and DB2 access. Screen-scraping is a common technique. Any screen scraping modules for python? I assume this would require an SNA gateway on the unix system to enable 3270 emulation? True?

I see the value of a class when two or more instances will be created, but Python programmers regularly use a class when there will only be one instance. What is the benefit of this? It has a disadvantage of a whole lot of "self." being required everywhere, making the code less readable. Also, since a strength of Python is rapid application development, it slows one down to have to put in all those self.'s. The code seems much cleaner...

Hi all, I'm posting partly so my problem and solution might be more easily found by google, and partly out of mere curiosity. I've just spent a frustrating bit of time figuring out why pydoc didn't extract a description from my module docstrings. Even though I had a well formed docstring (one line, followed by a blank line, followed by the rest of the docstring), when I ran Module docs, my modules showed up as having "no description"....

Hello, I am using the Python DB API for access to MySQL. But it is not platform-independent - I need a module not included in Python by default - python-mysql, and it uses a compiled binary _mysql.so. So it is not platform-independent because for each web-server on different platform, I would have to download it and extra compile it specifically for that platform. Do you know of any Python solution for MySQL access that is 100%...
