DESCRIPTION

Solstice is a Web application development framework for Perl. Based on the MVC programming paradigm, it provides a sensible layout for Web applications that helps you write applications faster and with fewer mistakes.

For more information, see http://solstice.eplt.washington.edu.

This is a virtual class whose sole job is to provide a common platform of functionality for the various parts of the Solstice framework. While this can be subclassed directly, you probably want to subclass from something more directly useful, like Solstice::Model, Solstice::View, or Solstice::Controller.
