The server we will build is called AwesomeServer, an HTTP server that receives specific requests via files that are dropped in a folder on disk (instead of a network port) and then forwards them as proper HTTP requests to the rest of the request pipeline of the application. After the application processes the request, the returning response will overwrite the same file. Shows a diagram of how a request is read from a file and the returning response is written back.
