Good afternoon all

I am busy with a project where I need to read an RFID tag, get the data
associated with the tag and then push the data to a web page for a
security person to monitor.

I can successfully read the tag by using LogicAlloy's ALE server. It
then calls my Catalyst application at http://localhost/ale/notifier :

sub notifier : Private {
	my ( $self, $c ) = @_;
	#$c->stash->{template} = 'notifier.tt2';
	$c->stash->{tagdata} = $c->request->params->{tagdata};
	open (TagData, '>C:\Eclipse Projects\Asset
	print TagData $c->request->params->{tagdata};
	close TagData;

As you can see I do not get the associated tag data yet, I am just
trying to display the tag data received from the ALE server.

I can see that the data is coming through correctly by monitoring the
console debug and checking the tagdata.txt file.

The problem that I have is that I have no idea how to push the data to a
web page instead of pulling.

I have tried using catalyst redirect, forward and subrequest with no

I am not a hard core developer, so any assistance will be greatly
