Give the the discussion from the thread at the link:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/298113/how-can-i-implement-a-restful-webservice-using-c

Lets assume that I'm using  Apache Tomcat and Apache Axis as part of my front end.
An incoming HTTP Request would get routed through the Server, the XML message parsed via Axis and the appropriate service invoked.   IOW.

HTTP Request
     |
Apache Tomcat (Web server)
     |
Apache Axis (parse SOAP/REST message)
     |
Web Service

One the responses within the thread had a link for web development  (Http template) libaries for C++.  ClearSilver and CppCMS were a few tools mentioned.

The question.  Where does a web development framework library fit into my flow diagram above?   In other words, would I need a piece of code that'll sit in front of the Apache Tomcat server that'll modify the html pages that get served up to a client - to include parse the html pages?

Not sure if I'm following what the need is for a 'web development library' given Apache Axis as part of the front end.  

I'm trying to layout a flow diagram that shows what happens when a request is submitted from a web portal (HTTP request) to access a RESTful web service
