Pre-forking SOAP servers - PERL Miscellaneous

Hi all, Rob Riepel, in [url]http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&selm=mvyitg0vhui.fsf%40Zathras.Stanford.EDU&rnum =2[/url] indicates how to implement a forking SOAP server... What I need to do is implement a pre-forking server - i.e. one which forks of, say, 4 processes all listening on the same port. I've already got this working for our own (in-house) tcp/ip non-SOAP server processes (i.e. several listening on a port, and the first picks up a request and processes it while the others continue to listen), but we need to extend this so that they can handle SOAP requests also/instead. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, James...

    Default Pre-forking SOAP servers

    Hi all,

    Rob Riepel, in [url]http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&selm=mvyitg0vhui.fsf%40Zathras.Stanford.EDU&rnum =2[/url]

    indicates how to implement a forking SOAP server...

    What I need to do is implement a pre-forking server - i.e. one which
    forks of, say, 4 processes all listening on the same port.

    I've already got this working for our own (in-house) tcp/ip non-SOAP
    server processes (i.e. several listening on a port, and the first
    picks up a request and processes it while the others continue to
    listen), but we need to extend this so that they can handle SOAP
    requests also/instead.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    James

    Have you read Lincoln Stein's "Network Programming with Perl"? Although his
    examples of pre-forking servers (Chapter 15) are HTTP not SOAP, the
    principles may well be easily adaptable.

    Julian,
    Thanks for the pointer - will look into it.

    My problem is that I don't really want to have to dive deep into SOAP
    etc., I'm hoping someone's managed to do this with existing Perl SOAP
    packages (e.g. SOAP::Lite). The main issue is control over creation of
    socket listeners etc.

    Yes, this may be lazy, but according to some Perl gurus, laziness is a
    virtue!
