Hi Amar,

[cc:ing plt-scheme list]

If you haven't seen it already, take a look at the main text of "How to 
Design Programs":


If you've already programmed in something else, I'd still heartily 
recommend reading through it and doing the exercises.  (I personally felt 
it was very slow at first.  I felt like a little kid again, but then, 
that's how I always feel. *grin*)  Things really pick up around Chapter 9, 
and it's worth the effort.

If you're interested in a more lesuirely introduction to the web server 
framework, you may want to read:


The servlet2.ss 'teachpack' described there presents a user-friendly 
interface to the web-server functionality, but unfortunately, it hasn't 
been ported to PLT Scheme 301 yet.  So as you read Matthias's tutorial, 
grab v209:


and load the servlet2.ss teachpack under that environment.  You should 
then be able to at least go through that tutorial's examples without too 
much trouble, and then the web-server API should make sense.

Another good paper to look at is Developing Interactive Web Programs:


Best of wishes to you!
