Thanks for the plug :-)

For those who haven't used it before, OpenThought is a web application framework which allows you to update portions of the screen without reloading the page.

   If it's only limited components which have to change

OpenThought has grown a lot over the last year. There used to be a limitation that form elements were the only visual items which could be updated without refreshing the screen. However, that has now been extended into any HTML item with an "id" tag. Basically, that could be anything :-)

You're also able to send in JavaScript code from the server, access existing JavaScript functions and variables, and sessions are automatically managed for you -- no more need for cookies or adding session id's to the end of each url. It's good stuff :-)

There's a version in CVS that supports mod_perl 2.x and has some significant improvements in the installation system. It will hopefully be released within a few days. Good luck!
