Intros for developers coming from other development environments
might not be a bad idea as long as the intros are high-level and
short like you find in the beginning of most Python programming books.
It's probably better in most cases to stick with the "Cookbook" approach
of task-oriented tutorials that teach developers to focus on problem
solving in Webware rather than thinking in ASP or PHP and then trying
to translate to Webware. The "WebwareRecipies" section of the Wiki is
a step in the right direction. I am a convert from other solutions
like PHP and Tomcat and I'd like to see more pure Webware examples
that solve common problems rather than looking at equivalencies
between Webware and other solutions with which I'm already comfortable.
Problem: You want a Webware servlet to redirect the user to another
Solution: Use the "sendRedirect()" method of the response object:
from WebKit.Page import Page
def respond(self, trans):
res = self.response()
