NAME ^

Rose - A complete web application construction kit.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Rose;

    print "This is Rose version ", Rose->version, "\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

Rose is a work in progress. It is a suite of modules used to build web applications in the mod_perl environment. Support for Apache 1 and 2 is planned.

The Rose suite is broken up into several components. This module (Rose.pm) lists all the other Rose components as prerequisites. Bundle::Rose is another way to install the entire suite.

CLASS METHODS ^

version

Returns the version number of the Rose suite. This version number will not be meaningful until I decide on a policy for suite versioning. Until then, ignore it and simply download the latest version of each Rose::* component. The easiest way to do this is to install Bundle::Rose.

COMPONENTS ^

Rose is made up of the following components:

Rose::Object

A simple object base class and method maker.

Rose::URI

A URI object built for easy and efficient manipulation.

Rose::DateTime

Central location for all Rose-related DateTime utility functions and wrapper objects.

Rose::HTML::Objects

Object representations of HTML tags, particularly HTML forms and fields.

Rose::DB

DBI abstraction layer.

Rose::DB::Object

Create and manipulate object representations of database rows.

Rose::Conf

Perl module configuration system.

Rose::BuildConf

Simple Perl build system for web applications. (Unreleased)

Rose::WebApp

Web application framework. (Unreleased)

As you can see, a lot of these components have not yet been released. I've decided to release what I have so far because I think Rose::HTML::Objects may be useful immediately, even without any of the unreleased web application code.

DEVELOPMENT POLICY ^

Here are the ground rules for the Rose suite:

BUGS ^
