Embperl - How to Build Large Scale Websites/Webapplications With Perl
Gerald Richter, ECOS-Electronic Communications Systems

Track: Apache Web Server
Date: Wednesday, July 24
Time: 11:30am - 12:15pm
Location: Sea Breeze I

This talk shows how to build a large scale Websites/Webapplications with Perl using Embperl. It discusses the concept of separation of application logic, display logic, content and layout and how this can be implemented within Embperl. It covers how application objects are created and what they are good for, how whole pages are broken up into components and how Embperls inherence model for components is working and what are its benefits. It continues with giving an impression of Embperls processing pipeline, which allows creating the output of a component within multiple transformation, so very different data sources and rendering techniques can be used.

Among others this comprises embedding Perl into HTML, using static XML, generating XML dynamically, doing XSLT transformations and using XSL-FO to generate HTML, XML, PDF, text and other output formats. During our journey through Embperls possibilities we will also get in touch other with features necessary to build a large scale websites like session handling, caching, database access and internationalization.
