PROJECT: enhance Maypole, a MVC web application framework

AMOUNT: $1,000

DURATION: 1 month

Perl does not currently have an enterprise-ready web application frameworkwhich oversees the entire request process from web request through data sourceaccess, manipulation and output. Maypole is a new MVC framework for webapplications, similar to Java's Struts, but designed for minimal coding andmaximal flexibility.

Many Perl programmers would save many hours when faced with trotting out yet another web frontend to a database without requiring much code. A Perl response to the popular Struts framework would fit the needs of more heavy-duty users. Would revive more residual interest in Perl.
