Subject RE: Servlet gateway to legacy cgi application
Date Thu, 28 Oct 2004 14:53:22 GMT
I initially looked at CGIServlet, but I run the Apache http server, 
rather than using Tomcat's implementation.  I also need to implement my 
own functionality (primarily for user authentication).  But yes, this 
is close to what I'm after.  I'm sure I can roll my own, but it would 
be nice to find an existing solution.

I just googled cgiservlet, and this may yield something useful.  I will 
let you know.

Thanks,
Shawn
