Well, for the purposes of discussion, because I don't understand how to best use Process, let's say that's acceptable behavour. It's okay if the request is considered finished as soon as the process is. Now, how would I do it?
Didn't we come to the conclusion on IRC? I think the idea was
and your .epy would look something like
Note that this code is guaranteed to be incomplete, but I think that's the general idea.
That's some creative handwaving. :)
Unfortunately, you can't FORGET_IT from an epy, so this isn't possible. If you want to take a look at how a resource does it, take a look at CGIScript in twisted.web.twcgi.
In my Copious Free Time, I will attempt to write widgets that do this and database queries. Others are invited to do so as well. Don't use .epy scripts in the future if you can avoid it though; I want to remove them from the distribution sometime in the very near future.
