Web Programming in Python : Techniques for Integrating Linux, Apache, and MySQL
Python is 100% enterprise ready, with powerful database and XML support, and even a full CORBA implementation. But it's virtually impossible to find a book that shows you Python at work in a real enterprise environment. Web Programming in Python fills that gap, demonstrating exactly how to build robust, Web-based systems that integrate Python with other key open source technologies, including Linux, Apache, and MySQL. The book begins with a quick introduction and self-standing reference to Web programming in Linux environments using Python and Apache. You'll then review Python CGI programming from the ground up, discovering how to generate clean HTML code without adding unnecessary complexity to your code. Once you've mastered the fundamentals of Python Web development, the authors introduce threading, Linux networking, and other advanced techniques for maximizing the program robustness and scalability in. Finally, using a start-to-finish case study, you'll push web technology to its limits, as you build a powerful XML-based, database-driven application that utilizes CORBA distributed components.
