I have sought similar and similarly found no all-in-one solution for my stuff. What I did come up with is HTML::FormValidator, which does some HTML form validation, but the validation isn't fully to my taste because I want synchronous JavaScript and Perl validation, or rather, JavaScript regular expression validation to save some round trips, which is fed from the Perl code / a database.

The one thing I've come up with which I like better than your approach is dividing the single pages into unlinked single pages and having an external structure that defines the order of my pages, like so :

my @pageorder = qw(welcome address notify done); my %pages = { "welcome" => \&page_welcome; "address" => \&page_address; "notify" => \&page_notify; "done" => \&page_done; }; my %validators = { "welcome" => \&validate_welcome; "address" => \&validate_address; "notify" => \&validate_notify; "done" => \&validate_done; };

but as you see, my layout is still mostly linear. Having some tree-like paths would be interesting and with my approach, the navigation component can be abstracted, but I haven't found a nice and good way to implement the chosen path (calling all possible validators isn't an option in a non-linear graph anymore :-) ).
