Project Woohoo

Project Woohoo is an www object-oriented database entirely in Perl. Uses include content-management web services (CMS), or a perl-based application server. A novice can install and configure it, or an expert can develop complex OODB web systems.

I have some documentation under way, and I hope to post it before I head to Nicaragua (3/1 - 3/11) -- I'll work on the project there in my free time, but won't have much net access, so expect an alpha release mid March (2002). (2/26/02)

This project is similar in some ways to a native Perl version of Zope.

If you are curious about the name, read / post here.
