in reply to CGI::Application for complex web applications?

Well, i was in a similar situation. I implemented a POP3/SMTP based WebMailer without using any framework (like CGI::Application(::Plus)). Everything was working but unclean. A year later i thought about including IMAP and NNTP as well. But i knew that my kernel was to unstructered, so i looked throught cpan and found CGI::Application(::Plus). I tried it and started reimplementing my webmailer. But i didn't like the fact, that i had to do the dispatching stuff (as you mentioned). Now I use Catalyst (The Elegant MVC Web Application Framework :) ) which is really powerful and easy to use (thanks sri). Have a look at it.
Now I'm happy.

    CGI::Application::Plus should not be used. The author has depricated the module, and changed the name to CGI::Builder, so if you really want to, use that instead. However, make sure you read up on the author before using those packages...

      Yes I'm aware that CGI::App::Plus is deprecated but CGI::Application itself isn't.

      I was thinking of CGI::Application::Plugin::AutoRunmode so that I wouldn't need to write setup and add run modes by hand ...
