Using C or C++ library for server side rendering of images
Posted on 2007-08-03
I want to build a web application. Here's more or less what it will do:
1. Allow a user to select some info from a web page
2. send this to the server
3. based on this the server renders an image via a C library
4. sends back to client
It can be Windows only - so we can use IIS
There's a few ways to go with this. PHP with SWIG binding to the C lib. An ASP component. Ch CGI binding to the C lib via the Ch SDK and the list could go on.
I know c++ and PHP best although I can also work in VB and ASP and other stuff too.
I need some architectural suggestions that solve binding the web service (PHP, ASP or whatever) to the C library in an efficient way, and in a way I can get up and running quickly without too much weird stuff.
Looking for the best, clearest suggest and way forward - an example VC project would be great
further questions welcome.
