It is also possible to develop C++ Web Application on stand alone servers as explained in the C++Builder 2010 PDF document that can be downloaded from this http://www.oopschool.com/ site. The exact URL is: http://www.oopschool.com/books/CPB2010.pdf Scroll down to page 72 section 18. The desktop is on the web.
As Python / Django can be hooked into an Apache web server, we think it should be possible to do the same with C / C++.

C++ has always been considered a language for mission-critical server-side functionality. Web development, although in part server-side based, is done using different software development languages. I try to analyse what caused this situation. Possibility to provide a portable pure C++ web development framework is explored.
This article is for people, who believe that C++ can be successfully used to build sophisticated web applications and are frustrated by the lack of basic tools to do so. It doesn't provide any kind of definite plan on how to create a C++ web development framework, but rather tries to share some thoughts, give an inspiration and some guidelines.
