I hear on this forum that XDC announced that CGI will be dropped for Standalone.
1. Does this mean that the IDE will only build a Standalone app, giving us no option to build a CGI app?
2. Right now, with CGI apps, I can build them so that if I have to kill the app (say it's unresponsive for some reason, producing an Internal Server Error 500), I can do that with a simple SFTP app on my mobile phone. This is done by simply renaming the CGI file, and then renaming it back. A piece of Timer code sees the missing CGI file and kills the app. When the CGI file is renamed back to normal, the next user to hit the app starts it again. I don't need access to the command line to handle such a situation. Will a Standalone app allow for simple killing and restarting from a mobile phone?
3. Also, the Timer code mentioned above will kill the CGI app when SessionCount drops to 0. This allows it to automatically restart during unresponsive situations described above (I always have found that unresponsive CGI apps soon lose their Sessions). But suppose a Standalone app becomes unresponsive. Can it be configured to die and restart? I can't imagine how that would be done, as it has no access to the command line when dead. At least the CGI app starts up again when the next user hits it.
