I think the general term is Object-Relational Mapping (ORM).  In perl,
there are a number of them including Rose::DB::Object, Class::DBI,
DBIx::Class (and many others).  Python has several, also, including the
above-mentioned sqlalchemy, SqlObject, DejaVu, and a few others.  Ruby
has ActiveRecord.  Java has several, some of them multitiered.  See here
