Interactive web services are increasingly replacing traditional static
web pages. Producing web services seems to require a tremendous
amount of laborious low-level coding due to the primitive nature of
CGI programming. We present ideas for an improved runtime system
for interactive web services built on top of CGI running on virtually
every combination of browser and HTTP/CGI server. The runtime
system has been implemented and used extensively in , a
tool for producing interactive web services.

Keywords: CGI, Interactive Web Service, Web Document Management,
Runtime System, Session Model.
