From the review which I wrote for CGI::Application
on this site here
Why use CGI::Application?
The CGI::Application module implements this object-orientated framework within which to build your application by creating a super-class within which specific 'run-modes' can be defined. Each run-mode can be correlated to a particular stage of the HTML/CGI user interface. Furthermore, the CGI::Application module implements methods to address the CGI.pm and HTML::Template modules, facilitating powerful methods by which to build extensible and portable web applications - It is obvious that the module author, Jesse Erlbaum (jesse at vm dot com), has put a lot of work into the development and writing of this module.
This module allows you to do away with ugly code through the combination of CGI.pm, HTML::Template and methods provided by CGI::Application to implement persistent variables across execution states.
Additionally, and most importantly, by providing a framework in which CGI parameter parsing, template handling and session storage can be seamlessly incorporated, CGI::Application allows developers to focus on business logic rather than framework implementation details.
