Qt HTTP server
KodeClutz [kodeclutz.blogspot.com] just published a blog entry praising an HTTP server written completely with Qt:
QHttpServer: Web Apps in Qt
Qt is a great GUI toolkit, but it is also an entire C++ standard library waiting to be used for other tasks. In addition the network module is really powerful. I’ve been playing around with node.js for a while now, and realized that Qt’s default asynchronous nature maps over perfectly to create a event-based web server. To make things better, Ryan Dahl’s small and fast http-parser is freely available. So I just combined the two, and here is QHttpServer.
You can find the entire blog post on http://kodeclutz.blogspot.com/2011/02/qhttpserver-web-apps-in-qt.html the sources are on github [github.com].
thanks volker, was looking for server.. see this thread here [developer.qt.nokia.com] … will give this a shot for my pet project but on hold now.. past few weeks :(
If you are searching for a Qt based HTTP server, try out QtWebApp, which contains such a library plus an example application.
The library support persistent connections as well as cookies and file-uploads. Usage is a simple as Java servlets.
