Now, ApacheTutor.org's Nick Kew has written The Apache Modules Book, the first start-to-finish, example-rich guide for every developer who wants to make the most of Apache. Kew begins with detailed, accessible introductions to Apache's architecture and API, then illuminates all the techniques you'll need, from request processing through code security. He brings together the best of both worlds: powerful C-based techniques for accomplishing tasks Perl or PHP can't handle, implemented with tools that deliver all the productivity you'd expect from higher-level languages. Utilizing realistic code samples, Kew introduces techniques documented in no other book-and, often, nowhere else at all. Coverage includes Using Apache Portable Runtime (APR) to streamline C development and avoid its pitfalls Leveraging Apache DBD to build applications far more scalable than classic LAMP software Working with the latest Apache 2.x features: filter modules, XML support, and smart proxies Mastering best practices, from thread safety to multi-platform development Utilizing the Apache Authentication Framework Tracing and debugging problems in both Apache and your custom modules Foreword Preface Acknowledgments About the Author Chapter 1 Applications Development with Apache Chapter 2 The Apache Platform and Architecture Chapter 3 The Apache Portable Runtime Chapter 4 Programming Techniques and Caveats Chapter 5 Writing a Content Generator Chapter 6 Request Processing Cycle and Metadata Handlers Chapter 7 AAA: Access, Authentication, and Authorization Chapter 8 Filter Modules Chapter 9 Configuration for Modules Chapter 10 Extending the API Chapter 11 The Apache Database Framework Chapter 12 Module Debugging Appendix A Apache License Appendix B Contributor License Agreements Appendix C Hypertext Transfer Protocol: HTTP/1.1 Index About the Web Site ApacheTutor.org contains code examples from the book, all designed for easy use and integration into existing applications.aquot;Do you learn best by example and experimentation?
