Subject RE: mod_perl implementation possibility
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 20:02:16 GMT

i'd encourage you to look into mod_perl as it can be amazing in letting
you get the most out of your hardware.

as far as running multiple unrelated perl apps using mod_perl- i think
it happens every day! you just need to program them accordingly. also,
you can use virtual hosts under apache 1.3.x too.

if you use appropriate naming for db handles, there should be no
confusion. i'd also suggest you take a look at Apache::DBI.

i don't know what framework you're using, or how you will segregate the
apps. it might be better to have them all running under one webserver,
or maybe you will need to start up a few of them. there are many
mod_perl application frameworks that may help you get up and running
more quickly.

i know HTML::Mason and CGI::Application pretty well, and i think either
could do what you want it to.

with mod_perl you can do pretty much anything you want, it's just how
much time do you have to spend programming to get it to work as you'd
like. with the frameworks, there's even less programming that you need
to do.

good luck.

having read modperl's doc and i am concerned about running multiple
unrelated mod_perl apps on one server, such as 2 or 3 medium Perl apps.
( issue like database handler pollution etc which i know little about )
