Whenever I need to write a web-application I do use jython and write
servlets. This combines the power of Servlet/JSP with the worlds best
a jython servlet would look like this:
from javax.servlet.http import HttpServlet
class MyServlet(HttpServlet) :
def doGet(self, request, response) :
session = request.getSession(1)
lang = session.getAttribute('language')
if not lang :
# initialise the session (i.e. choose language)
# produce output suitable to lang
if lang == 'DE' :
print >> res.writer, "Hallo Welt!"
print >> res.writer, "Hello World!"
There are other solutions. I believe that Zope offers session-management
