in reply to DHL API Integration

I'm new to Perl, any advice/suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the Monastery and to the wonderful world of Perl. The obvious suggestion is to begin by browsing the Getting Started with Perl category within the Tutorials section.

I have to integrate DHL services (e.g. shipment request) into a web application and I was wondering if anyone has experience with this?

I have no experience with DHL specifically. A quick search on brings up Net::Async::Webservice::DHL which sounds like it might be ideal but as I haven't used it this isn't a recommendation. It does use an event loop so maybe not the easiest module to use for a beginner in all honesty. Perhaps some other monk has experience with it and can comment further.

OTOH there are lots of general web service client modules on CPAN so you might want to start with one of those if Net::Async::Webservice::DHL proves too complex/unwieldy/out-of-date.

Good luck with your project.

    Thank you very much for your prompt response and help and for welcoming me. I had a look at Net::Async::Webservice::DHL but as you suggested it appears to be out of date (based on the release date) and the distribution is up for adoption. I will take a look at the general web service clients.
