Looking at killer places to use Ada, has
anyone plugged Ada (like gnat Ada) into the
Apache web server infrastructure? I am
looking into this as the traditional "perl"
applications start to get too big (say 100 lines:-).

I know this is possible from C/C++ modules, so it
should work from Ada also.

This would be a very powerful capability. ASIS
could probably be used to generate the
perl module interfaces that Apache seems to
need to describe the coupling from the embedded
language and the applications (something like IDL).

Any previous experience in this would be appreciated.

I am actually looking at this for some XML
parsing and tree traversal capabilities - written
in Ada, of course.

Thanks.
