To All-

I have tried consently to get mod_python to compile and create the .so
file for Apache.  To date this has been an unsucessful adventure.  Has
anyone done this type of install with HP-UX 11.11, Apache 2.0 and the
latest version of mod_python.  Desperately seeking insight.

I've just gotten started with mod_python, using it for about 2 weeks,
and can offer these insights(?) 1. easy install and getting started 2.
simple mods to apahce conf to "invoke" it 3. really cool code if using
the publisher 4. only limitation I've found is that you need to restart
apache when you deploy .py changes.  There may be a way around this, but
it wasn't worth the effort to me to explore.
5. if you're using Session objects, take special note of the "lock"
If you try to get the same session object twice during the same
execution cycle (i.e. POST) it hangs with the default setting.  Some may
argue that getting the same thing twice is just sloppy code, and they
may be right, but when the wolf's at the door you gotta...

I was able to write a security handler that intercepts all .py and .html
references and assures login before access is granted.  web site
developers are unaware of my "intercept" so they cannot bypass it.

a simple controller, that is the only file that is web specific, calling
my backend logic that also runs from command line for debugging.

none of the above was more than 1/4 page of code.

There are (too?) many python web frameworks.  Others seem like they may
be better for my needs, but this works easily.  Will explore others when
wolf's on vacation.

Why don't you ask the very active mod_python mailing list that?

Like all systems mod_python has its limitations, but it has an active
development community who are extremely responsive to user and developer

Follow-ups set to gmane.comp.python.mod_python.
