Description:

Prerequisite packages:

KomServices (which in turn needs DynamicBindings and, if you are using a pre-3.7-image, Named Process)

KomHttpServer is the Comanche web server package. To get a simple web server running, install this package and evaluate the code below. A simple file serving web server will be started and will serve the files in your default directory.

| ma |
ma := ModuleAssembly core.
ma serverRoot: FileDirectory default fullName.
ma documentRoot: FileDirectory default fullName.
ma directoryIndex: 'index.html index.htm'.
ma serveFiles.
(HttpService startOn: 8080 named: 'httpd') plug: ma rootModule

After starting the server, point your web browser to http://localhost:8080/

If you have loaded Seaside, you can start a web server that serves Seaside based applications using the following configuration:

| ma seaside |
seaside := WAKom default.
ma := ModuleAssembly core.
ma serverRoot: FileDirectory default fullName.
ma alias: '/seaside' to: [ma addPlug: [:request | seaside process: request]].
ma documentRoot: FileDirectory default fullName.
ma directoryIndex: 'index.html index.htm'.
ma serveFiles.
(HttpService startOn: 8080 named: 'httpd') plug: ma rootModule

See the class comments of the various subclasses of ComancheModule for documentation and usage examples.
