    Hi Bruno, nice shared. But i've a question,

    Why In the module you've defined new DAL connection and not pass

    existing DAL connection in the __init__ of the module 

    or maybe using the gluon.current?

      Hi, not sure what you mean. Db is defined only once in the __init__. But what if you had referenced two classes in your controller. Does it mean there is a dal connection for each table ? Is that what you meant?

Models are a very special web2py feature, but they like as scripts running on every request. Now with modules we can improve web2py performance with a more Pythonic code base.
