pjam on rails, part 2 ( pjam projects )

Recently I wrote a post about a pjam - a perl applications build server. Now I continue the topic and try to uncover some pjam vital features.

First of all, central point of pjam is a "project", which is the collection of URLs with a source codes for your application:

Every url therefore holds a part of source code for you application. Modern application…

Dealing with perl applications deployment, which I do with chef - modern open source platform for configuration, I have written psgi cookbook to configure, install psgi applications.
