For an example, have a look at Catalyst::Plugin::Session and its various
sub-modules (such as Catalyst::Plugin::Session::Store::CDBI or
Catalyst::Plugin::Session::Store::DBIC). No doubt it wil give you some
ideas how to handle the persistence issue of your application. It may even
give you the idea to start using Catalyst as your web-framework of choice
(shameless plug).
