Forum OpenACS Development: tcl with sockets ???
Anybody knows if it is posible to develop a tcl socket on the openacs to send/receive xml data from an xmlsocket flash object ??
I´m sorry, I´m begginer.
Sadly this is not for beginners, so unless you know C and something about socket programming and threading, it might not be of much use to look at this.
Last but not least, this code was written by Björn Kiesbye, so you might want to contact him directly if you have questions.
You might eventually want to write C code though, in order to take advantage of fancier AOLserver features. I'm not familiar with this, but people have used both AOLserver 3.x and 4.x to implement (high performance, I think) non-HTTP servers in AOLserver, e.g. SMTP, POP3, and DNS servers. Currently that requires patches to AOLserver 4.x, but people are working on integrating those patches in the stock AOLserver release. See in particular SourceForge Feature Requests 726288 and 973010.
