  • FWIW: not all Perl servers are single threaded: HTTP::Daemon::Threaded [cpan.org] was recently loaded to CPAN. Its pretty green (simplistic session mgmt, no DBI connection pools - yet), and isn't really intended for large scale performance, but rather for simple integration into web-enabled apps. But it might be interesting to see how well it can scale (ie, how many threads can be managed).

    I'm currently using it to develop a debugger [presicient.com] (very prelim view), hopefully that will shake out HTTP::D::T a bit more.

    BTW: does anyone know the status of Servlet [cpan.org] ? It hasn't been touched in 5 years, and I can't figure out what sort of HTTP server it uses...in fact, I didn't even know about it until I was searching for other HTTP::Daemon extensions (rather poor toplevel name choice...)

    • I think Brian Mosely has left the building. He used to be on the mod_perl list, but we haven't heard from him in years. I'd steer clear of Servlet at this point.
