in thread The App:: namespace? Sharing a webapp on CPAN
If the webapp wasn't on CPAN, you could do the same thing. Or, you could just bundle the modules you need and, that way, you're guaranteeing the proper versions. Just because you require v1.34+ doesn't mean that 1.35 didn't break something you need.
This already happens with the webapp, as it has ver 1 of the CPAN module bundled. Sometimes, 1.1 ver of the CPAN module gets installed site wide and things blow up. I'm hoping this won't happen - or if it does, I'll know about it, at the same time as everyone else.
Forcing everyone to come to CPAN just to get your app means you're limiting your userbase to Perl users.
I'm not forcing anyone, it just another alternative, *specifically* for perl geeks, with a lot of benefits. Non-Perl geeks don't know how to use CPAN and that's the current userbase. I'd like to grow the userbase.
If you don't care, why are you expressing an opinion?
