  • Actually it isn't that hard to add things like authentication to Maypole. The only current drawback is the Object/Class == record/table view of things which it inherits from Class::DBI.

    I used a combination of CDBI and Maypole to build an ecommerce website in a small ammount of spare time and that included learning both and setting up a new server for it all from scratch.

    The front end uses CDBI and custom mod_perl handlers, the backend uses Maypole and the same CDBI classes and different authentication t

    • I certainly haven't counted out looking at Maypole again in the future. However, the presentation Simon gave didn't really make me feel I was gaining anything more from what I've already got.

      I had a chat with Richard Clamp afterwards and we were discussing CDBI. I had a few misconceptions about it, and although I have tried it, it didn't feel like I was getting a benefit from it. Rich said there is a jump in the learning curve that is a bit like learning a second language with CDBI, where a switch gets flipped in your brain and suddenly everything becomes clear ... I still haven't made the jump. Once that thought process is obvious, the wider use for Maypole is a lot clearer. So I will be revisiting it, just not yet :)
