Continuations and Web Servers

Abstract

Programming web applications in direct style with the help of continuations is a much simpler, safer, modular and better-performing technology than the current dominating “page-centric” technology combining CGI scripts, active pages or servlets. This paper discusses the use of continuations in the context of web applications, the problems they solve as well as some new problems they introduce.
