I have been asked to create a web interface for an access database. It's a pretty simple set of forms to submit and retrieve records. No transactions or anything fancy. What is the current thinking about how to implement this kind of functionality? Mason, straight Perl, XML, something else? Favorite modules? This is one of those projects where the the requestor has basically not provided any requirements so I'm left to my own devices. Of course TIMTOWTDI but thought I'd take a survey of the prevailing wisdom.
I'm basically a intermediate perl coder. I've used enough modules to understand how to use them. Maybe a little weak on data structures, and DB I/O. Markup languages aren't a particular challenge conceptually, (syntax always kicks my butt) but I haven't done any web development with perl since 4.x. Maybe 20 years ago?
