in reply to Client prefers java, but wants to hear a case for Perl

My employers are moving from "some Perl and lots of C CGIs" to basically a complete Java shop. One of their major arguments for not using Perl at all is that "it is not supported." What they meant by that, to the best of my knowledge, is that there isn't any paid support for Perl.

We did a little searching and found that ActiveState has Commercial Support available for Perl (and I am sure there are others).

Now the "powers that be" are reconsidering their stand, especially after my group of three pumped out some quick code to do some pretty involved statistics and data mining, all in less time than it took them to put "formal requirements" around the project.

So, I don't know if "support" may be part of the argument for Java (and possibly against Perl), but it shouldn't be.

[makita]: sign_types parameter in XML::Compile::WSS ::Signature Does have anybody experience how to use it?
[makita]: Need to sign more elements but all types I put in array are ignored. And is always signed only the body
[Discipulus]: no makita sorry. i see in the synopsis of the module: "WARNING: Only limited real-life experience" might be better compose a SOPW with some code example and data
[Discipulus]: ..or inspect the source code of the module
[makita]: I am doing this:
[makita]: my $sig = $wss->signature( schema => $wsdl, token => $token, sign_types=>'wsa: Action','wsa:To', 'wsu:Timestamp', 'wsa:MessageID',' SOAP-ENV:Body', signer=>DSIG_RSA_S HA1, public_key => $cert,
[Corion]: Oof, I haven't done much with signing SOAP requests. markov is usually somebody good to ask via mail ;)
