Web-X Goes on the Linux-JSP Fast Lane

The Tacoma-based application development shop announced that it has recently added Seattle-based HomeTownFan.com to its slew of national clients using Java Server Pages and Linux for their e-commerce operations. HomeTownFan.com is a sports apparel and memorabilia e-commerce site .

The top benefits of using the JSP-Linux platform is Linux's fast speed, ability to run on PCs and its cost-free availability. However, Web-X's Tacoma location offers yet another advantage. The City of Tacoma has invested over 100 million dollars into its "Click!" network. A fiber optic network that offers local dotcoms high-speed internet connection at a low cost.

According to Web-X President Joey Caisse, who founded the company from his Washington State University dorm room back in 1995, many developers currently use NT/ ActiveX. However, according to Caisse that is about to change.

"Linux is kind of like the little engine that could," says Caisse. " The development community is beginning to pay attention to its valuable benefits in enterprise computing".
