I have some questions about a server side solution.
I am running on a OpenBSD testbox an apache Webserver with Perl CGI that serves several forms etc. and reads/writes to a database, which is for the moment a flat file (if later neccesary I transfer it to MySQL). I also want to make a more simple gateway for midp phones to the same app and add some other functionality to it. I want to use java servlets for that.
In order to have the servlet(s) integrated with the Perl script I will have to make an interface. I will adjust the script to make that possible, I thought it would be best if I keep the script as the only program that can write to the database.
My questions are: Do I need an Applicationserver for that, or will Tomcat do just fine? At the moment only JDK 1.2.2 is available on OpenBSD, so will that restrict me in my programming?
