I have a fairly complex web based UI that I'd like to rewrite in Perl. Do you have any recommendations regarding the JavaScript and Perl libraries to use?

I could not care less for kewl animations and stuff as it is the admin face of something, but the forms are pretty complicated with tables containing something like ten inputboxes, several pulldowns, checkboxes etc. in each row, some of them validated (preferably also on client) some opening popup windows allowing the admin to control more details, with the need to be able to add or remove rows, etc. etc. etc. Of course it would be great if I could filter or reorder the rows on the client etc.

I know I've read about some module that would let me build the UI similar to the way I would build a desktop UI and I remember that I liked both the idea and the results, but for the life of me I can't remember the name and a search on CPAN failed. Does it ring any bells? As I said, I do not mind the looks as long as it's easy on the screen estate, is reasonably easy to work with and handles the complicated stuff well.
