Official Mirror
From the perspective of a module author, this allows you to write tests
against a datbase without knowing precisely which databases will be used.
You call Test::Database->handles() and you get a number of DBI handles
against which you can run your tests. You can specify which Databases you
are willing to support.
From the perspective of someone installing a perl module which uses
Test::Database, you put a config file in your home directory which
explains how to connect to non-file based databases. File based databases
do not normally needed configuration so long as the DBD driver is available.
