Web Continuations Review

I think what I want to do first is to build up a review of all the web programming systems that use some notion of "continuations" and compare them. This could be a 2 or 3 page writeup.

Some first notes:

  • PLT scheme seems to have it. Reading "Automatically Restructuring Programs for the Web" by Graunke, Findler, Krishnamurthi and Felleisen
  • Ruby has continuations, but apparently no way to freeze them onto a web page.
  • That "Continuations" rubbish in Jetty.
  • Borges has caches server-side objects from multiple points in a user's session, in order to support the back button.
