Abstract: In this presentation, Cincom engineer Jerry Kott will present an architectural overview, do a configuration walkthrough of Cincom VisualWorks’s HTTP server named ‘SiouX’, and demonstrate the new web application development framework named ‘AppeX’. SiouX and AppeX are built in our Cincom Smalltalk foundation and work in both Cincom ObjectStudio and VisualWorks.
With the upcoming release of VisualWorks 8.0 foundation, Cincom is providing new tools to enhance a developers' ability to develop rich behavior web applications. SiouX is a light-weight, high performance HTTP server with native streaming support. It is now the underlying server for all VisualWorks web components, replacing multiple servers. SiouX’s flexibility and scalability allows the easy integration of Seaside, Web Services and other web technologies all running on the same server.
Example applications that will be included in VisualWorks 8.0 will be used to demonstrate the different aspects of server configuration and integration of diverse applications in a single VW image.
