mod_cplusplus is a C++ wrapper around apache-2.0.
Easily implement object oriented apache-2.0 handlers with C++ including all the standard phases of the request cycle, input filters, output filters, and protocol handlers.
This is a big improvement for a number of reasons:
C++ modules now only need pure C++, with no kludges to allow apache hooks to invoke C++ methods.
All request phases and filtering phases are exposed cleanly through object oriented method invocations.
The core structures (e.g. request_rec) are objectified to encapsulate functionality and provide a clean api.
Because mod_cplusplus only instanciates your objects once per server, you can easily cache re-used data in the object and all requests to that child will benefit.
Simply subclass from the included baseclasses (e.g. ApacheHandler) and implement whichever phases of the request you are interested in (e.g. check_user_id()) and point mod_cplusplus at it in the config file. No need to hack your own module structure to proxy calls to your objects.
make sure you have apache-2.0 installed
make && make check
Make check will fire up apache, install the modules from the example/ directory, and perform some request to verify they are all working. You can use these examples and the config snippets in test/t/conf/extra.conf to get started on your own.
