I know Tim will not blow his own trumpet but ...
One of the biggies was and is DBI.

We used oraperl and ingperl (perl5 stuff) prior to DBI
and did the oraperl v6 to v7 migration - even in those long
ago days, perl was being used with "real" databases for real
business apps.

Another biggie was mod_perl,fastCGI and MP's precursor/
standin/placeholder - cgi-minisvr.
