My site is a high traffic site that uses mod_perl only for the following reasons:
- performance since all code is precompiled
- persistent database connections (DBI is overloaded by Apache::DBI to do this)
- good UTF8 support
- code does not need to be rewritten. It overloads the CGI object
I've considered the following modules:
FCGI: does not support multi-byte chars properly (it is not Unicode aware and only characters within the range 0x00-0xFF are supported)
FastCGI: no persistent database connections. UTF8 support?
Plack: requires refactoring of the code. I couldn't find persistent database connection support in the man pages.
Did I miss a solution? Thank you for your reply. I'm curious to find out about your thoughts.
