Did you know that there is a TCL interpreter in Sun's Web Server 7.0? And it is put to good use, as shown by True Blue in this collection of detailed blog entries on WADM, starting with why TCL was chosen (this was way before jRuby came into focus at Sun), going through parts II (global variables), III (ACL), IV (log analyzer), V (access to Java objects), VI (parsing httpd.config), VII (faking a file system), and the last - so far - VIII (extensions).
