What you will learn:
How to begin to use the full mod_perl API


So, you have managed to port all of your existing CGI scripts to work under mod_perl and Apache::Registry. Now what? In this session we will start harnessing the real power of mod_perl and introduce handlers as a means to take advantage of the Apache API and request phases, improve performance, and allow for greater developer flexibility. Direct examination of handlers that integrate tightly with the Apache request cycle, such as uri translation, authentication, and filtered content generation will be presented. Strategies for migrating an application from Apache::Registry to handlers, such as using Apache::Dispatch and a brief look at a world without CGI.pm will also be covered.
