CGI::Application is a Perl framework intended to make it easier to create sophisticated, reusable Web-based applications. This module implements a methodology which can make Web software easier to design, easier to document, easier to write, and easier to evolve. CGI::Application builds on standard, non-proprietary technologies and techniques, such as the Common Gateway Interface and Lincoln D. Stein's excellent CGI.pm module. CGI::Application judiciously avoids employing technologies and techniques which would bind a developer to any one set of tools, operating system, or Web server.
MidWay is a service request broker. It provides a simple way for server programs to offer services, and for client programs to call the services. It is designed for maximum speed and scalability. MidWay consists of a library that gives programmers a simple API, and various runtime daemons.
Designed as a Perl framework to support many different types of POP and email servers, Mobile POP Relay is useful for mobile users. Once a user successfully authenticates against a POP server, relaying is allowed through the server for a specified time period. It supports Ipop3d, Qpopper, and Vpopd with Sendmail or Exim.
PicoGUI aims to be a complete GUI environment for handheld computers and other embedded systems. It uses a client/server model, like the X window system, but while an X server is given raw drawing commands, the PicoGUI server integrates a widget set, making PicoGUI clients small and efficient. PicoGUI also has the goal of allowing client/server connections over a variety of mechanisms. It is most commonly used with Linux, but is designed to be portable to any OS. PicoGUI has a variety of video and input drivers which allow it to interface with the Linux framebuffer device, SDL, the X window system, and several other devices.
ACDK is a development framework with a similar target of Microsoft's .NET or Sun's ONE platform, but it uses C++ as a core implementation language. It implements the standard library packages, including acdk::lang, acdk::lang::reflect, acdk::util, acdk::io, acdk::text (including regexpr), acdk::net, acdk::sql, acdk::xml, and more. Flexible allocator/garbage collection, threading, and Unicode are implemented in the core of ACDK. Extensions make C++ objects available for reflection, serialization, aspect-oriented class attributes, and [D]ynamic [M] ethod [I]nvocation. This DMI acts as an universal object oriented call interface to connect C++ with scripting languages (Java, Perl, Tcl, Python, Lisp, Visual Basic, and VBScript) and standard component technologies (CORBA and COM).
WebDyne is a dynamic content engine for Apache or FastCGI servers such as lighttpd. It allows Perl code to be linked or embedded into HTML pages, selective rendering of HTML sections within pages based on logic, and much more. It supports features such as templating, and selective caching of dynamic content to minimise server load and increase throughput.
