Hello all,

I was wondering how can i create a web server in c++ builder using only boost libraries i found these examples but i didn't understand any of it.

I know that RAD studio has Datasnap and EMS but i wanted to learn this too.

It was saying something about
boost::asio::io_service io_service_;

But i couldn't get what i have to do to create a very small example. For instance i want to be able to do the following:

//If i called this from a client
//The response in browser should be 
Hello World

Then learn how to add headers & body for request & response.

But I don't even know how to start by binding the socket on the server for listening.

Please, if anyone has experience in this matter it will be really appreciated to help.
