Thank you for your answer, Morgan.
   What I want to do is to plugin an in-process http server module in an
exsiting product to expose its original functionality as web service
(soap over http). :)  Since the existing product is already an executable
one so it seems that the only choice is to write an apache module to
communicate with apache http server and the existing product by IPC...
   I know there are in-process http server in java but I would not like to
add the burdon of an additional JVM and the cost of JNI calls so I am now
looking for an in-process http server in native language.

Good luck!
