Epeios CGI libraries
The Epeios libraries are a set of C++ libraries for writing CGIs (software called by a http server and which handles user requests and returns a HTML page). CGIs written using the ECGI libraries are very different from most CGIs. They are actually daemons which receive the user requests and return an XML flow (they are referered to here as CGIDs-- Common Gateway Interface Daemon-- to avoid confusion with classical CGIs). To develop a CGID, the ECGI libraries provide objects dedicated to handling user requests and the managing ksessions. The core Epeios libraries provide what is needed to generate the XML flow. CGIDs can be can be hosted by a different server than the one hosting the http server, so several http server can access them simultaneously. This is useful for load balancing and high availability.
