Database Abstraction Layer And/Or ORM


B

BJ Dierkes

Hello all,

I am looking for opinions on preferred methods of Database
Abstraction Layer or Object Relation Mapper (I'm using Python 2.5).
I have found a number of options such as those listed here:

http://wiki.python.org/moin/HigherLevelDatabaseProgramming


I'm not looking for a holy war based on whether a DAL/ORM *should* be
used, and/or if it is preferred over direct access to the database
API layer. I understand that can be a lengthy discussion. I would
just like to see if there is a common 'preferred choice' in the
area. I am coding an application around SQLite, but need to keep the
flexibility to allow the use of MySQL (or other).

Thoughts?

Well... Then, it seems like SQLAlchemy is getting most of the buzz
actually !-)
