Designing an Embedded Web Server

Obtaining data from an embedded application can be somewhat cumbersome. Traditionally, the data was transferred through a serial connection. To increase throughput on this relatively slow connection, the application would write the data to the connection in a raw format. A dumb terminal connected to the embedded device would then collect the data for the user to interpret. Multiple embedded systems required one serial link per system loading the host system I/O space. If the terminal supported graphics, it would also have been necessary to write a graphical interface; otherwise, the data would have dumped out as straight text.
