in reply to More Perl or More Java for Our Prototyping?

Rather than considering a GUI, you could develop a Perl web app that runs locally on your PC. Start by installing Apache.

CGI::Application describes itself as "a mature, lightweight, flexible MVC framework for web application development". In pratice This tutorial gets you started in about 30-40 lines of code.

The graphs could be done server side (eg using CGI::Application::GDGraph::lines_ap). Alternatively you could do it client side. Just google for one of the many freely available javascript scripts.

Update: fixed GD Graph reference.

    Why install Apache when there is HTTP::Server::Simple? Apache has many features that are not needed for a single-user webserver.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
     
    Here is the Perl solution for my light weighted standalone web application (based on the input so far):

             Using IIS, or install Apache, or HTTP::Server::Simple

             Developing a Perl web app that runs locally on my PC using CGI::Application, which is "a mature, lightweight, flexible MVC framework for web application development". Tutorial here.

             Drawing graphs on server side using CGI::Application::GDGraph::lines_ap and GD::Graph

             Oracle database access using DBD-ORACLE


    Thanks
