This book provides the tools and principles needed to design a high-performance, dynamic Web site using Perl. Special attention is given to templates, integration, and load testing. Topics covered include the need for speed, document management with templates and embedded Perl, faster performance using persistent Perl, good Web coding style, faster database access from Perl, and pairing XML with Perl for content management and B2B communication. Emphasis is placed on robust, scalable solutions for dynamic database-backed, template-based or XML-based Web sites. The book's focus on optimization is a unique approach. Readers of this book should be able to build a high-performance Perl-based Web solution as well as recommend one with confidence.
