Webware is a application server (in development) that does Servlets and Server Pages in Python so what it really wants is a path into its servlet directory so it can find the source, generate the content and send it back through the handler. For now the mod_python handler is just a proxy that marshals some data from the request,sends it to the application server via a socket, and relays the response back to Apache. If I were using Directory I'd have to make a physical directory somwhere just to contain the handler and nothing else or I suppose I could put the handler in my servlet directory but it just doesn''t seem to belong there. Using Location I can place the handler with the other application server source files. That just seems cleaner for now. Of course, this is all making me think of what will happen when I want to put server pages alongside static html and have the right thing happen when .html or .psp (server pages) are called for, but I suppose there is some way to coerce Apache into doing that.
