what CPAN module should I use for the "server-side processing"?

Why do you need a module? Can you describe what such a module would do?

So you have a web server and you receive an ajax request with all the many parameters needed to fetch the next page of results. If you were using a module and you wanted to provide those parameters and get back JSON, what would the module do? Isn't it only to query the DB and convert the results to JSON? So what should the module do? Wrap up the DB query with some layers of abstraction? By the time you wrote the config needed you could have written the handler directly with DBI.

I admit I often have some custom filtering/ordering code in the ajax route handler that preprocesses the DB query but as I said before I don't see how that could productively be abstracted.

The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
