What exactly was that contest? :) (and did the design of the 'device' win, or the code?)

has anybody ever tried to write a SOAP server side implementation
in lua (in lua itself, not a SOAP server in C) , i.e. a lua script
which is executed on server side by a webserver/cgi?

im happy to follow links or ideas.



I've not done exactly that, but I have written a WebService application using gSoap that accepts arbitrary Lua scripts from a networked device that runs linux.

The program runs on a host PC and the linux device connects to the host PC via a USB network adapter.
It worked out really well - ended up wining a design contest with it.

But no, it's not totally implemented in lua, and to be honest I don't think I would want to take the performance hit for doing so.

If you want more details let me know.
