A Request's Path Through Roxen

This chapter is devoted to how a request is processed/routed through the various layers inside Roxen, lightly addressing the module type calling sequence, but mostly intended to give a sound perspective of what happens where and a fair grasp of how roxen works inside. This chapter is explicitly not limited to pike programming, in that it also outlines where CGI, Java servlets, Perl, PHP etc. fits in the overall picture.
