Building an application that services HTTP requests

I want to build an application that can take HTTP get and post requests and process them and send a result back in an XML format.

I would like suggestions on how do I go about doing this? I want to run my own server for handling the requests and sending them to appropriate classes for handling the requests, and come back with a response.

I need some information on this asap.

Thanks

AJ

As far as processing the request and sending the result as XML you could for example implement that as a servlet if using jetty

I also want to understand the concept behind implementing a HTTP server. Can you explain any particular implementation? I was wondering about also using other languages than Java. How would I build in a different language like C/C++? My question is more aimed at the concept behind the implementation instead of an actual implementation.

I want to see how to do it in an overall way, and figure out what implementation I want to use then.
