My software is heavy database, so many html ui is one table edit like form, or master-detail form curd. What's the relivent ui framework suitable in Catalyst. TT or FormBuilder or FormFU or others out of the Perl world?

    It is not exactly clear what is your problem. But if you need to deal with forms I would recommend HTML::FormHandler

      I would recommend HTML::FormHandler?

      Any particular reason why?

        It is my personal preference. Some years ago I tried HTML::FormFu and CGI::FormBuilder to see if they can help me with form handling. I was disappointed, because they wouldn't allow me to reduce amount of code or make it more clean comparing to what we had in our project. In fact I was disappointed so much, that when Gerda Shank released HTML::FormHandler, I ignored it for more than a year before giving it a try. And when I finally gave it a try I instantly liked it, it really does make things simple, concise and clean.

        I don't want to pretend that I learned everything about HTML::FormFu and CGI::FormBuilder before giving up, and it is possible that they both improved a lot since I looked at them, but if you're looking for module to handle forms I would definitely recommend you to include HTML::FormHandler into list of modules to try.

    Most web applications use a database but are not "simply front-ends for" one. You need to define the functionality of the web application that you need, which definition includes but is not limited to how that application interacts with a database.
