Dear SPUGsters

What is the quickest, easiest way to create a database application at a website?

It's been a while since I've checked in with Catalyst, or with other Perl "frameworks". Is Catalyst 
the top dog in the Perl world for this kind of thing?

Since the app I'm creating is small, I might use something similar to CGI::Application. No mod-perl 

Maypole? http://maypole.perl.org/

Gantry? http://www.usegantry.org/

Perl on Rails? http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radiolabs/2007/11/perl_on_rails.shtml

Should be interesting to hear what people are actually using, and which of these showed some promise 
but haven't matured.

What say you?
