A Camel under struts?

matija has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've been doing a lot of Ajax work lately, and while I know, love and use CGI::Ajax, the recently published webworks framework seems to be miles ahead of it.

The problem is that webworks depends on having struts under it in the browser. All well and good, but struts implies programming in Java (as far as I can see, please correct me if I'm wrong), and I want to do Perl, not Java.

Does anybody know of some way to make your Perl code look like it was struts to things like webworks? Or does anybody know of a comparably powerfull Ajax/Javascript/DHTML framework that integrates with Perl instead of Java tools?

later:Note to some of the readers: I am NOT confusing javascript with Java. I know there's no connection between the two. Webworks is a javascript/DHTML framework that does an enormous ammount of stuff on the client side (in javascript) and it communicates with the serverside for other stuff. And the connections to the server side are written to make it easy to work with Java (specificaly, Struts on the server side).

Incidentaly, extensive googling turned up Perl briges which looks like it might be relevant, but I don't see enough documentation to prove or disprove that. Anybody have any experience with it?

    It's early days for this project yet, but you may want to take a look at Jifty.

[1nickt]: Corion HPs? ugh. I was impressed with Lenovo's gaming laptops; if it weren't for the red backlighting and general flashiness of the aesthetic, I might have gone with that. But all that was until I discovered that the Dell Precision line is still around.
[1nickt]: stevieb I don;t doubt that there's a difference. BestBuy has "consumer" models only on display.
[ambrus]: 1nickt: for some reason, these days they call every computer "gaming", even ones that gamers wouldn't buy. I've bought a keyboard that was labelled "gamer", despite that it has hard springs and seems to be way better for typing than for gaming;
[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".
LanX has a shaming laptop
[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
