Microstate Announces First Open-Source Java Web Application Server

Microstate Corp. Monday released Hamilton, its thin-client, open-source and cross-platform Java-based Web application server.

Microstate's server technology already includes most of the infrastructure required by typical thin-client applications, which reduces the development time and expense and accelerates the application's time to market. Developers and end-users can utilize their Web browser to access the applications developed with Hamilton.

By using the Hamilton Web application server, companies can deploy and maintain large scale applications over networks without regard for the end-user's operating platform.

According to Microstate, Hamilton is the answer for developers who need a Web application server that facilitates rapid application development of thin-client, Web-based business applications. The use of Hamilton simplifies the maintenance of content once the application has been deployed.

William Woods, chief executive officer of the Bermuda Stock Exchange, is among the company's satisfied users.

"The Hamilton Web applications allowed us to quickly create an online presence for all of our listed issuers and members, and to concentrate on building the Exchange versus building the Web site."

Hamilton is well suited for companies that are developing online services which pool data from diverse information sources, such as databases and wire feeds.
