in thread Help me fill a gap in my server-side knowledge?

Although Dancer (and most of these other frameworks, including Catalyst and Mojolicious) comes with a mini-webserver bundled into the framework, it's really only intended for development purposes, so that you can debug your app in a persistent environment without having to restart apache every time you modify the code. This HTTP server is not intended to be used in production deployments.

For production purposes, the app would normally be mounted under a specific base URI in apache (or starman or whatever your preferred web server might be) and any requests falling under that URI get passed off by apache to Dancer, just like they would for a bare-bones script running under CGI, FastCGI, PSGI, mod_perl, or whatever. Dancer would not normally be running as a server itself.

(If you really wanted to, I guess you could run Dancer as its own HTTP server on another port and have apache proxy requests to that port, but that would add unnecessary complexity and is neither the standard nor the intended way of doing it.)

[Corion]: ... values to be used. For example, I think for headers, one would want to have various kinds of Content-Encoding headers, but for the get_parameters one would have various kinds of Bobby Tables
[choroba]: What about [metadoc:// Algorithm::Loops]?
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, but handing off the request to Dancer,Plack, Mojolicious,LWP is easy once I have the data filled into some structure ;))
[choroba]: Algorithm::Loops
[Corion]: choroba: I'm using that to generate the permutations, but I don't know how the user can pass the intended values to my function in a sane way
[Corion]: I have a prototype that permutes the get_parameters, but the values used for the get parameters should be different from the values used for the headers and potentially for parts of the URL
[Corion]: But yes, in general, my approach will be "split the URL into another set of parameters, generate an array of allowed values for each parameter and then NestedLoops() over the set"
[choroba]: hmm... so you need something like bag from Test::Deep, but not for checking, but for generation
[Corion]: This has the dual use of easily requesting sequential URLs and also being suitable for testing
[Corion]: For testing, I want to skip all tests with the same value(s) once one test fails to cut down on the number of failing tests
