Hi,

I am a newbie to CGI world... We are having an existing webapp hosted on Websphere Application Server 6.1. Now I got some CGI scripts which are independent of any other modules.. and I need to host them on this application server along with our current application(Struts webapp).

I looked fot cgi-bin directory in the application server's directory structure.. but couldn't find any such folder..

My question is how can I host these .cgi files in my application server. Any pointer towards achieving is helpful....


Thanks

Not sure you can do this - it kind of doesn't make much sense to be deploying a CGI application on an application server. However, you could easily enough stick an HTTP server in front of WAS and handle you CGI requests there.

I don't know how to do it, but IBM seem to have some documentation that looks promising.
