14 Using Cheetah with Webware

Webware for Python is a 'Python-Powered Internet Platform' that runs servlets in a manner similar to Java servlets. WebKit is the name of Webware's application server. For more details, please visit http://webware.sourceforge.net/.

All comments below refer to the official version of Webware, the DamnSimple! offshoot at ?, and the now-abandoned WebwareExperimental implementation at http://sourceforge.net/projects/expwebware/, except where noted. All the implementations are 95% identical to the servlet writer: their differences lie in their internal structure and configuration files. One difference is that the executable you run to launch standard Webware is called AppServer, whereas in WebwareExperimental it's called webkit. But to servlets they're both "WebKit, Webware's application server", so it's one half dozen to the other. In this document, we generally use the term WebKit to refer to the currently-running application server.
