Ruslan, I forgot to post the mail to list...here it comes.

I create a new folder CDB in ../rt3/lib/ and put there my files for my own 
database-connection (see attachment). There are also a Handle.pm. In 
./rt3/lib/ I put CDB.pm and called it in webmux.pl with use CDB and 
CDB::Init(). In Init() I create a new instance  of my CDB::Handle, but the 
database-connection I create in my own autohandler.

When I create my own SearchBuilder and Record in folder CDB, so it could maybe 
work. Does I have to regard something else?
