Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Developer's Guide


FastCGI is an enhancement to the CGI, which is a standard for interfacing external applications with Web Servers. Like CGI, FastCGI applications run in separate, isolated processes. FastCGI plug-in allows Web Server to safely work with popular third-party dynamic content generation technologies (such as Perl and Python) in a scalable way.

For information on creating FastCGI applications, see the FastCGI Plug-in chapter in the Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Administrator’s Guide.
