I’m working on a Historical Server replacement. I need to check with my employer as to whether I can open source it or not but the guts of it consist of:
- Perl POE/DBD::Sybase for the daemon/ASE db connections (using FreeTDS instead of OpenClient)
- SQLite for the local storage (way lower overhead than ASE or SQL Anywhere)
- Perl Catalyst / Template::Toolkit web front end with REST web services
All of this goes into a VMWare Appliance running7.10 Server… a drop-in solution that can even be run on a laptop. I’m hoping that my employer lets me release it as then I can zip it up and put it on sourceforge so everyone can benefit.
