Creating a FastCGI Application

To create your own FastCGI application, you need to create a FSRequestHandler subclass. The FSDemoHandler is an example of a request handler that uses a variety of techniques to return a response to the server.

Another example can be found in the "FS Swazoo" package, It contains a RequestHandler class that converts the FastCGI parameters into a Swazoo HTTPMessage and uses SwazooResources to create the response.
