We have successfully used the following in catalog UserTags:
my $db = Vend::Data::database_exists_ref('products')
or return sprintf("Table %s is not available", 'products');
my $dbh = $db->dbh();
It may not be "proper" but it has worked successfully for years, which
has been reliable enough for our purposes.
