Hoi Sjoerd,

On the RunRev newbie forum Gary Rathbone posted a copy
of a modified MCHttpD-stack. This stack serves
web-pages and built-in cgi-scripts, not using the
separate engine that MC/RR provide on their wesites.
I had already been thinking of transforming that into
a full-blown SOAP-server, but I have more ideas than
time unfortunately.
At any rate, you could build a standalone of this,
with all the necessary libraries, make the connections
to the database on startup time, and reply to the
cgi-requests from within the stack.

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
