Finance-QuoteHist provides Finance::QuoteHist, a Perl module that provides easy fetching of historical stock quotes from a variety of sources on the Web.

DBIx::Browse handles the browsing of relational tables with a human-like interface via the Web. It transparently translates SELECTs, UPDATEs, DELETEs, and INSERTs from the desired "human view" to the values needed for the table.

You can change your database type easily, the only changes required in your scripts being to queries with database-specific options.
XAO Content adds dynamic content capabilities to XAO::Web-based projects.

The content is stored in a database, and a caching mechanism is used to speed up access.
OpenIsis provides a library and tools to access CDS/ISIS databases, which are mostly used for bibliographic data (ISO2709, Z39.50) but also well suited for other catalogues due to the very flexible indexing mechanism. Based on a C library, there are also bindings for Perl and Java (Tcl to come).
