Creating High Performance Web Applications using Tcl, Display Templates, XML, and Database Content

Alex Shah and Tony Darugar
Binary Evolution, Inc.


We describe an online system that provides a framework for the rapid creation of high performance, database driven web sites based on content from XML files. The software that "glues" the content to the presentation is written in Tcl. The proposed architecture uses a pool of persistent Tcl engines to substantially improve performance and robustness as compared to traditional server-side programming techniques.
