Subject ANNOUNCE: CGI::Application::Generator 1.0
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2003 13:04:44 GMT
Version 1.0 of CGI::Application::Generator is now available via CPAN!

Download site for CGI::Application::Generator:

- First release version of CGI::Application::Generator, a
  module intended to allow the creation of CGI::Application
  modules dynamically.
- Implemented an Object-Oriented interface to specify the
  functionality of your intended CGI::Application, used to 
  build the structure automatically using a (configurable)
  template file. 

CGI::Application::Generator provides a means by which a CGI::Application
module can be created from code, as opposed to being written by hand.
The goal of this module is two-fold:

1. To ease the creation of new CGI::Application modules.
2. To allow standardization of CGI::Application coding styles to be
   more uniformly applied.

It is also the hope of this module that Computer Assisted Software
Engineering (CASE) tools will eventually emerge which will allow the
development process for web-based applications to be greatly improved.
These CASE tools could more easily convert visual notation (such as UML
state-transition diagrams) into method calls to this module, thereby
creating actual code.

What This Module Does Not Do

CGI::Application::Generator is intended to create a shell of an
application module based on the specification you provide. It will not
output a completely functional application without additional coding. It
will, however, handle the creation of all the structural parts of your
application common to all CGI::Application-based modules.

CGI::Application::Generator is not a system for HTML templates. If
you're looking for a Perl module which will allow you to separate Perl
from HTML then I recommend you download and install HTML::Template.
