Wombat is a servlet engine for Perl. It provides a servlet container that implements the Perl Servlet API (version 2.3) and complies with the Java (TM) Servlet API Specification, in intent if not in form. The engine is designed to run in many different deployment configurations: embedded inside a protocol server, standalone with an external protocol server, or standalone with one or more internal protocol listeners.
05 November 2001: More than three months later than anticipated, I am happy to announce the first preview releases of Wombat (0.7.1) and Apache::Wombat (0.5.1). Although it's still missing support for parts of the Servlet API, you can write your own servlets and execute them in an instance of Wombat embedded inside an Apache/mod_perl server.
Unfortunately I had to take down the link to the Examples webapp. Because SourceForge doesn't allow us to run daemons on the shell hosts, the examples weren't actually live, and people were getting confused. I'll try to figure out an alternative.
