Simon Cozens

PROJECT: enhance Maypole, a MVC web application framework

AMOUNT: $1,000

DURATION: 1 month

DISCUSSION:
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.

BENEFITS:
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.
