Summary: CGI::Ajax - a perl-specific system for writing Asynchronous web applications
CGI::Ajax is an object-oriented module that provides a unique
enhanced HTML pages. CGI::Ajax unburdens the user from having to
method with a document-defined event (such as onClick, onKeyUp,
etc). CGI::Ajax also mixes well with HTML containing more complex
CGI::Ajax supports methods that return single results or multiple
results to the web page, and supports returning values to multiple
DIV elements on the HTML page.
Using CGI::Ajax, the URL for the HTTP GET/POST request is
automatically generated based on HTML layout and events, and the
page is then dynamically updated with the output from the perl
function. Additionally, CGI::Ajax supports mapping URL's to a
CGI::Ajax function name, so you can separate your code processing
over multiple scripts.
Other than using the Class::Accessor module to generate CGI::Ajax'
accessor methods, CGI::Ajax is completely self-contained - it
does not require you to install a larger package or a full Content
Management System, etc.
We have added *support* for other CGI handler/decoder modules,
like CGI::Simple or CGI::Minimal, but we can't test these
since we run mod_perl2 only here. CGI::Ajax checks to see if a
header() method is available to the CGI object, and then uses it.
If method() isn't available, it creates it's own minimal header.
A primary goal of CGI::Ajax is to keep the module streamlined and
code to a minimum, but still provide users with a variety of
