[Dancer-users] Problem with WWW::Mechanize in Dancer

I guess I thought that I should be able to make a call to another Route
within the same application, since WWW::Mechanize is acting like regular
client browser.

Other route would have provided the information requested. If we can't do
this, then how are we able to handle simultaneous connections to Dancer?

It seems to me that the route should have been able to be processed via
requested URL.  If I am certainly wrong then please forgive me, and share
further detail if you can.

Is the only alternative to run two instances of Dancer?  One for the API and
one for the UI?  Or is it to run a stand-alone CGI script which makes JSON
RPC calls to the API, outside of dancer?
