in reply to CGI::Application

I selected CGI::Application as a web development framework based largely on information I found in perlmonks... However now I am hitting the limitations of it - particularly the lack of a model component.

If you are looking for an ActiveRecord type pattern, check out Jifty.

Personally, I feel that the lack of a defined model interface in CGI::App and Catalyst are strengths, not limitations. Just grab one of the ORM frameworks from CPAN and start using it.

    Yeah that is what I thought you are supposed to do. But when it came down it I did not feel it really solved my problems. I'll try to put a meditation together at some point on the subject.

    Also I have looked at Jifty and Catalyst but I keep deciding I really want to use CGI::Application.
