The process of writing your own servlets for the Tynamo™ server
does not change: you can retrieve an
Writer and output data just as you have done before; cookies
and session data can be stored; requests can be forwarded to, or
included in, another servlet. In other words, write your servlets as
normal. All servlet features are available to you.
Configuration is done via the servlet
You must be aware of a few features and restrictions, however. The
restrictions are found here,
and the extras are as follows:
com.qindesign.http.serverProps context attribute
Hashtable object from which you can access all
of the webserver properties. They are read-only. For example, you
can determine what the request timeout is, which port the server is
listening to, and the minimum time between each GC.
com.qindesign.http.startTime context attribute stores
Long object indicating the time in milliseconds the
server was started.
This server supports the "Basic" authentication scheme of
RFC 2617. In order to
use this facility, extend
instead of the usual
Successfully authenticated requests are passed to the
doPost methods, and unauthorized requests are sent
methods. Note that only the "GET" and "POST" methods are supported.
If there is a need for others, please let us know.
An example demonstrating how to use this feature can be found in
the example servlets.
