in reply to Dynamic Web Page approach?

I prefer Apache::ASP + HTML::FillInForm.

You get:
  • Automatic Session handling (via MLDBM::Sync by default)
  • Script_On(Start|End|Parse|Flush) events
  • Session_On(Start|End) events
  • Application_On(Start|End) events
  • Emailed error reports (emails server errors right to your inbox - highly configurable)
  • Simple upload handling ($Request->Upload(...))
  • Friendly interface to the Apache server API
    • $Server->RegisterCleanup( sub {...} )
    • $Response->Redirect(...)
    • $Response->End
  • print $str actually works
  • Familiar <% %> and <%= %> syntax

I have used Apache::ASP on a variety of projects, both low- and high-traffic and I have to say it performs well enough. Energy Works and ETundra both run Apache::ASP. I have also written some large scale in-house applications on Apache::ASP that I cannot link to.

Having extended the base Apache::ASP code in several different ways (altered XMLSubs behavior, db-persisted sessions, MVC-enhanced URI mapping, etc) I can attest to the quality of the underlying code in Apache::ASP as well - it's easy to override what you need to override without running into encapsulation issues.

I give Josh Chamas (maintainer of Apache::ASP) an A+ on his work. Check out the Apache::ASP homepage at for more information.
