Source code for cherrypy.test.modwsgi

"""Wrapper for mod_wsgi, for use as a CherryPy HTTP server.

To autostart modwsgi, the "apache" executable or script must be
on your system path, or you must override the global APACHE_PATH.
On some platforms, "apache" may be called "apachectl" or "apache2ctl"--
create a symlink to them if needed.


##1. Apache processes Range headers automatically; CherryPy's truncated
##    output is then truncated again by Apache. See test_core.testRanges.
##    This was worked around in
2. Apache does not allow custom HTTP methods like CONNECT as per the spec.
    See test_core.testHTTPMethods.
3. Max request header and body settings do not work with Apache.
##4. Apache replaces status "reason phrases" automatically. For example,
##    CherryPy may set "304 Not modified" but Apache will write out
##    "304 Not Modified" (capital "M").
##5. Apache does not allow custom error codes as per the spec.
##6. Apache (or perhaps modpython, or modpython_gateway) unquotes %xx in the
##    Request-URI too early.
7. mod_wsgi will not read request bodies which use the "chunked"
    transfer-coding (it passes REQUEST_CHUNKED_ERROR to ap_setup_client_block
    instead of REQUEST_CHUNKED_DECHUNK, see Apache2's http_protocol.c and
    mod_python's requestobject.c).
8. When responding with 204 No Content, mod_wsgi adds a Content-Length
    header for you.
9. When an error is raised, mod_wsgi has no facility for printing a
    traceback as the response content (it's sent to the Apache log instead).
10. Startup and shutdown of Apache when running mod_wsgi seems slow.
