I'm not sure why you'd want the database to be XML, but if you do, DBD::AnyData
can read and write XML databases using XML::Twig
. You'd probably be better off with SQLite, PostgreSQL, or MySQL as a backend. You probably want to use a web application framework like CGI::Appplication
or, for heavy duty Catalyst
. You probably want a database ORM such as DBIx::Class
. There are a number of threads on this site on all of those modules including some recent ones on comparing the web app frameworks.
