in thread Catalyst vs CGI::Application

The difference is that mod_perl requires Apache to be running and FCGI doesn't. Thus, you can scale FCGI onto an app server and leave Apache on the webserver while appservers for mod_perl require Apache to be running.

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    No, it's the same. FastCGI has some code that runs a daemon around your perl code. In mod_perl, apache is that daemon. When you run a front-end proxy, your proxy is the web server and the mod_perl server is nothing but a perl daemon, just like FastCGI.

[marto]: yeah, so that stays as before. But before the boys were born I'd be on quite often at night (GMT) also
[marto]: I had the option during our TUPE transfer to buy 5 more days holiday. They were shocked when I did :P
