Hi Kee,

You second tough matters : to be used in a full reliable way, the stack has to be used as a simple read-only handlers container. In this way, the lc script witch call it is't able to cause any interlocking problem with one of the other Apache managed CGI connections happening in the same time, just alike is goes with other standard CGI platform (PHP, Perl, RoR, Tomcat,…).

To get such a configuration 100% reliable, we need to avoid to see the server-side container stack as some kind of possible dynamic updatable GUI component. It's never the way server-side can act at its best.

At, this point, the optimal way to run LC-Server as a Web Application's Server at its best level without reinventing the wheel is probably to integrate closely its empowered apps with the RevIgniter (port from the PHP's CodeIgniter to LiveCode, by Ralf Bitter) and JQuery frameworks.

Regards,

Pierre

Or does it open a copy of the stack, do it’s thing, and return data out the CGI connection without causing problems for all the other CGI connections happening at the same time?
