By dispatcher I mean an app whose sole purpose is to spawn processes for
new incoming requests.
Okay. That's how the IBM i HTTP CGI interface works. The main HTTP process
may spawn additional CGI JOBs to handle new incoming requests, or
alternatively pass requests to idle JOB instances.
But the scenario I posed, was referring to a web portal program, which
submits new JOBs when users click on menu items, and using an HTTP plug-in
to "route" requests to them. End-user state is maintained in each JOB. This
is somewhat similar to persistent CGI. Except users have control over
starting and ending JOBs. Menu item click starts the JOB, while an "Exit"
link ends the JOB and returns users to a menu.
