Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-4200) Create plugins to enable cgi-bin support in Geronimo
Date Sun, 13 Jul 2008 20:50:31 GMT


Kevan Miller updated GERONIMO-4200:

    Attachment: cgi-bin.war

The attached war file seems to enable cgi-bin support using Tomcat's CGIServlet class. CGIServlet
does not support absolute file urls (only files relative to the war). So, it's not easy to
have a cgi-bin directory in the root of your Geronimo installation. It would be relatively
easy to update CGIServlet to support absolute file addressing (or at least relative to a Geronimo

If you want to use cgi-bin in your Geronimo installation, try the following:

mkdir cgi-bin
cd cgi-bin
jar xvf <path-to-war>/cgi-bin.war
../bin/ deploy --inPlace .

Place your executables in the cgi-bin directory. Note that this is less than ideal in that
you have the WEB-INF deployment plan/deployment descriptor in your cgi-bin directory.

plugins to enable this support.
