Abstract--- This paper presents a specification language ap­
proach to automatic server code generation. The language we
present has some similarities to the compiler tools Lex and Yacc,
and makes the generation of state machines and parsing of server
input simple. One of the main features of this new language is
that it can generate three different types of servers: process­
based, threaded, and event­driven. In addition, use of a server
generation tool can improve programming productivity, abstract
away unnecessary details, and eliminate certain classes of error.
Index Terms--- Servers, software tools, threaded servers, event­
driven servers.
