Bug#361010: RFP: tntnet -- modular, multithreaded web application server for C++

Kari Pahula-2
Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : tntnet
  Version         : 1.5.0
  Upstream Author : Tommi Mäkitalo <[hidden email]>
* URL             : http://www.tntnet.org/
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : modular, multithreaded web application server for C++

 Tntnet has a template-language called ecpp similar to php, jsp or
 mason, where you can embed c++-code inside a html-page to generate
 active content. The ecpp-files are precompiled to c++-classes called
 components and compiled and linked into a shared library. This process
 is done at compiletime. The webserver Tntnet needs only the compiled
 Because the webapplications are compiled into native code, they are
 very fast and compact.
 Components can call other components. So you can create buildingblocks
 of html-parts and call them in other pages like subprocesses.
 Requests are parsed by tntnet and the request-information is easily
 accessible to the components. It supports GET and POST-parameters and
 Mime-multipart-requests for file-upload.
 The templatelanguage has also support for internationalized
 applications. You can easily create webapplications for different
 Other features are: cookies, HTTP-upload, automatic request-parameter
 parsing and conversion, automatic sessionmanagement, scoped variables
 (application, request and session), internationalisation, keep-alive.
 Logging is done through cxxtools, which provides a unique API for
 log4cpp, log4cxx or simple logging to files or console.
 Tntnet is fully multithreaded and much work has been gone into making
 it scalable. It uses a dynamic pool of workerthreads, which answers
 requests from http-clients.
 Ssl is supported via the openssl-library.

Looks like there's no exception in tntnet's license to allow linking
to the GPL incompatible openssl library.  That'll still need to be

Cxxtools will need to be packaged along with this one, too.
