"In this book, the reader is guided through an extensible
and scalable web application development methodology. The tools
used to carry out the methodology include Perl, CGI, HTML and XML.
The recommended methodology is based on object-oriented and
decoupled functionality concepts. By the time you reach the
book's end, you will have developed and examined a series of web
applications that apply each design concept or programming
"The authors presume the reader possesses at least an
intermediate level of experience with computing and programming
technologies. With this framework, the book states the concept to
be applied or the task to be performed. The rationale for why each
concept or task is important is also presented. What you will not
find is a list of the steps required to perform the tasks.
Extending what you learn to your own applications is where the
intermediate to advanced experience comes in. What's presented will
generally get you up and running. Other resources are required if
you want more specific details."
"By the time you reach the end of this book, you will have
explored conceptual constructs, models and tools you can use to
develop web sites. These sites should be easier to deploy, update
and maintain. More importantly, web site content changes will not
always require programming expertise to implement."
