Binary package “tntnet” in ubuntu karmic
modular, multithreaded web application server for C++
Tntnet has a template-language called ecpp similar to PHP, JSP or
Mason, where you can embed c++ code inside a HTML page to generate
active content. The ecpp files are precompiled to C++ classes called
components and compiled and linked into a shared library. This process
is done at compiletime. The web server Tntnet needs only the compiled
Because the web applications are compiled into native code, they are
very fast and compact.
Components can call other components. So you can create building blocks
of HTML parts and call them in other pages like subprocesses.
Requests are parsed by tntnet and the request information is easily
accessible to the components. It supports GET and POST parameters and
MIME multipart requests for file upload.
The template language has also support for internationalized
applications. You can easily create web applications for different
Other features are: cookies, HTTP upload, automatic request parameter
parsing and conversion, automatic session management, scoped variables
(application, request and session), internationalis
Logging is done through cxxtools, which provides a unique API for
log4cpp, log4cxx or simple logging to files or console.
Tntnet is fully multithreaded and much work has been gone into making
it scalable. It uses a dynamic pool of worker threads, which answer
requests from HTTP clients.
