[tpm] Playing with Dancer (beginner assistance required)

Alright, so I got as far as setting up a couple of routes to return
serialized JSON provided the input is correct.

So far, so good.

Now, I'm trying to handle forms.. so far I I'm using HTML::FormFu, and it
seems to flow well with the templates.

The question I have now is, how do I utilize the JSON api routes I've
created from a form.

For example, say I have '/api/1.0/component/input' which returns serialized

Now lets say I have '/ui/1.0/form1' which provides an HTML form for the user
to submit something.

Once I retrieve the parameters, how do I use it to make a request to the
'component' api above.

Some code might be helpful, see here:
