The PxPlus Web Server
The PxPlus WebServer interface serves up Web content and
PxPlus functionality without the need for a separate Common
Gateway Interface (CGI) utility.
Create a dynamic PxPlus-coded Web site that allows browser
access to PxPlus as well as other file structuresand do it
easily, with minimal knowledge of HyperText Markup Language
Simply create the Web content using your favourite HTML
authoring tool (Microsoft Word, FrontPage, etc.) or by using the
PxPlus HTML editor. The WebServer interface enables you to
include line label entry points in Uniform Resource Locators
(URLs) to redirect processing to subprograms from your Web
applications. PxPlus treats variables passed as arguments in your
URLs as real variables in your programs. The interfaces
coding standards for HTML and for implementing PxPlus
applications follow all CGI conventions.
The WebServer interface runs as a background process for
Windows XP/2003/2008/Vista/Windows 7 & 8, UNIX, or Linux
servers and can co-exist with other Web servers. Use it
exclusively, or to augment your existing Internet operations. For
instance, Apache, Microsoft IIS, or Netscape can serve your main
site while your PxPlus WebServer delivers the transaction
oriented applications that have access to your PxPlus data.
It works with any standard Web browser and offers excellent
response time even in heavy traffic. The system can process as
many as a thousand simultaneous requests by monitoring up to a
hundred ports on a servereach port serving documents and
programs from one or more root directories.

PxPlus Apache /IIS HTTP Server Interface
Provides most of the features and capabilities of the PxPlus
Web Server but relies on an Apache or IIS HTTP front end thus a
