APP is coming to Apache

by Kurt Cagle

Tim Bray recently announced his publication of a new Apache module, mod_atom, which will make it possible to use the Atom Publishing Protocol (APP) directly with the Apache HTTPD server. This is a pivotal achievement, and one that will rocket APP into daily use. APP uses Atom feed content and HTTP headers to build a publishing "blog" system, though its uses extend considerably beyond the normal scope for blogging and could very well be a staple of most data publishing systems within the next few years.
