For the record, Catalyst & Maypole are Perl ports of the Ruby on Rails idea.

I haven't used Ruby myself, but a friend of mine swears by it, and this tutorial showing how to do exactly the kind of task you describe certantly makes it look easy.

Update: I stand corrected. I (like many developers, I suspect) had never heard of Maypole until I went looking for a Perl version of RoR, and most references I saw described it as exactly that.

    For the record, they are no ports. *cough*

    Except that they're not.

    Maypole was out for some time before Rails hit the streets. Indeed there was a perl.com article on it before Rails was out ;-)

    Catalyst has certainly stolen some stuff from Rails, but it's as much an evolution of Maypole as it is a version of Rails.

    (Not that Rails isn't an excellent little framework - and Ruby an excellent language :-)
