    how to design a CMS (content management system) in C++ ?

    My Intention is to design a CMS (content management system) in C++.

    I would like to have its architecture like:

    .module driven
    .keep html templates separate from c++ code
    .use configuration files(in xml ?)
    .various APIs, so that modules can call this APIs to generate various html files …

    I need your expert advice on, how to achieve this goal best way?


    I am using libgda from GNOME-DB project for connecting to database and Cgicc from Gnu for creating CGI apps in C++.
    Both technologies works great…
    And I am evaluating libTPT from (maybe its useful for my purpose!)

    I am not using other (scripting) languages because,
    I need full blown, OO language with support to templates (STL) etc.
    Java is too complicated and slow for me …

    I would very much appreciate your help ….(If you can please…)

    Thanks a lot.

    You're using the wrong technology honestly. For something like this I would look towards Java, PHP, or .NET. If you can learn C++, you already know a lot of Java.
