Re: Configuration

Nah.. CPPSERV doesn't claim to support "standards", it claims to have
API losely based on that of J2EE Servlet API ;-)
This means we can (and probably will) invent config format of our own.
In fact XML parser is the last thing I want to
hook up to this engine - it will automatically add dependancy on libs
that are at least ~1.5 M in size. Not something I
want to have in embedded device.

BTW, what do you mean by defining error pages? Isn't that done by
Apache? (ErrorDocument in .htaccess or apache.conf)

So, config-wise - we have session timeouts, "application definitions" -
i.e. set of related servlets sharing ServletContext and
session name. I guess adding per-servlet parameters should be reasonable
(think multiple instances of same servlet
hooked to different databases, etc).

Anything else?
