[Twisted-web] Assync method on render_POST(self,request)

My code looks like this:

... # class Site(Resource)
def render_POST(self,request)


   print '1'

   return "done" #that returns the HTTP response, always the same.

def doAssync(self,msg):

    d = defer.Deferred()



def doStuff(self,d,msg):

    # do some stuff

    time.sleep(2)  #just for example


def sucess(msg):

    print msg

The output:



So far, so good, but, the HTTP response (return 'done'), only happens after
the delay (time.sleep(2)). I can tell this, because the browser keeps
'loading' for 2 seconds.

What am I doing wrong?

Found some answer saying that wsgi twisted does not suport assync, and
maybe Tornado could do this. ... is that true?

Thanks anyway!
