This article presents code for a web server implemented using sockets and STL.
The code for the web server was adapted from the httpsvr sample in MSDN. The
visual interface has been removed. All of the the MFC code has been ripped out and
converted to STL, and socket classes were implemented.
The socket classes are:
These feed handler classes:
Socket notification comes from the abstract class
SocketHandler implements. A reference can be passed in to override the notification.
The http request classes are:
The request class allows you to create requests or to store a request. The request process processes requests by passing in a pointer to a buffer. The request process class gets initial info like the URL and then forms a response.
The startup code is in Server.cpp which declares an instance of
HttpServer. To set up the code to run set the directory where your web pages are and then compile and run.
I would like to here any comments on how to improve performance or how to better
implement the web server. So if you get time email me at email@example.com.
