I agree. We can work on it.
One method I have been using for static webpages that are build using
is to just use a website copier (e.g. wget -kmp --update-links
and then have a script that copies the website and moves these static
pages to an apache
In the http://www.4collegewomen.org site there are both static and dynamic
pages so I have two variables
[dcontext] and [scontext] and use the wget to copy only the static
pages while leaving links to the
dynamic pages alone. The apache-served static pages then have links to
the Jetty-served dynamic
pages and we get good performance on static pages and OK performance on
(which are used as often for that website).
I often work with the "founder" of the website (a public health
professional in Washington) by
phone and as we both view the website, I make changes to the dynamic
site, run the script to
copy it to apache, and she sees the changes almost immediately. its
pretty cool and really easy
from this side....

Yes, I do this on my sites using a "reload.servlet" at the top level
that I can call to reload the dynamic
environment that the servlets run in. That environment is initially
set up when the Scheme servlet is loaded
by calling some initialization code in WEB-INF/scheme/scheme.sss which
loads in the file in
WEB-INF/scheme/servletlib/init.scm and possibly elsewhere in WEB-INF.
