My background is in data warehousing (18 years or so) and more recently in building web-apps with a reporting flavour. I'm also responsible for OurCarClub, a web-based data management application for Car Clubs. It's built using perl, Catalyst, Template Toolkit, Class::DBI and MySQL, with more than a dash of jQuery.

comment Selecting all rows from Informix table containing some null columns
That really shouldn't be necessary. Certainly DBD::Informix handles NULL values properly - is there a good reason you can't use that driver rather than the ODBC one?

comment What is the difference between [% %] and [%- -%] in Template Toolkit?
And although it is not remotely related to chomping, I like to use [%- -%] because it aligns very nicely with 4-space tab expansion :-)

comment Splitting Catalyst Application
If they're so similar, I can't help thinking splitting them is probably a bad idea. Catalyst supports a variety of ways to handle REST requests, and if you have a fat-model, thin-controller application, the action handlers for REST requests will be fairly trivial. Please expand on what the expected benefit is for splitting the application.

comment Informix CASE and summing results
Don't do that, it looks like a headache. Try simply: DECODE(salesstat.int_num, 4, 0.2, 8, 0.2, 0.1) * SUM(salesstat.net_amt-salesstat.return_net_amt)
