yes in the similar, however, catalyst is kinda like  
frankenstein,cobbled together from the corpses of those long since  

IMO, the strength of catalyst lies in excellent controllers and a  
completely simple way to support multiple technologies for the view.   
The model part of it suffers a lot in comparison to Django and  
Rails.  In and of themselves, the perl ORMs are not so bad, but none  
of them integrate into the rest of Catalyst as well as ActiveRecord  
in rails or the Django bidness.
