Tcl in AOL Digital City: The Architecture of a Multithreaded High-Performance Web Site
Jim Davidson, America Online, Inc.

Today's dynamic, high-performance, database-driven Web sites require a platform that is fast, scalable, and provides for rapid application development and publishing. To address these challenges, AOL's Digital City uses a Tcl-enabled multithreaded Web server called AOLserver. This talk will describe the collection of optimized AOLserver Tcl extensions and the flexible Tcl-embedded HTML template architecture which power the Digital City service and publishing environment. In particular, it will highlight the advantages and pitfalls of scalable, mulithreaded Tcl application development.

Jim Davidson is Vice President of Technology at AOL's Digital City. Before he came to AOL, he was chief architect of Navisoft's Naviserver, the multithreaded, Tcl and database-driven Web server which has evolved into the latest AOLserver. He has a Bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
