in reply to modern ways of doing web services

Modern ways you ask? I've never ever used SOAP but I've used Catalyst and it works beautifully! The OO design and the awesome MVC architecture and the command line create and tests scripts and not to miss the test server that you can convert to a full fledged Apache like web-server... thats awesomeness. Plus, the "getting started" guide for Catalyst is really detailed and you can start with it even if you have least idea about Perl.

    SOAP is for automated access, not for user+browser+HTML-access to applications.

    In theory, it's self-describing, and in practice it's an overengineered headache.
