Servertec Debuts Java-based iServer Application/Web Server

Servertec Thursday announced the
release of iServer, its Java-based, platform independent Application/Web
Server.

iServer 1.8.0 includes support for Java Servlet API version 2.2 and
includes API changes, bug fixes and updates to documentation.


iServer is able to serve static Web pages as well as dynamic, data driven
Web pages
through the use of Java Servlets, Java Server Pages (JSP), iScript, Common
Gateway
Interface (CGI) and Server Side Includes (SSI). Additionally, iServer is
able to provide Servlet capabilities to any Application/Web Server through
the use of Apache Modules, ISAPI, NSAPI, CGI or Java.


The application/Web server provides an environment for creating and
deploying cross-platform Web-based business critical Internet and Intranet
applications. Servertec bills iServer as a “robust, scalable platform that
individuals, workgroups and corporations can use to establish a Web
presence.” Features include:


  • Platform Independence — iServer is built using Java and will run on any
    platform that supports the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.1.x
    or later
  • Open Standards — supports open standards such as Java, Servlets,
    HTTP, JSP, CGI, SSI, HTML, TCP/IP, RMI, IIOP, CORBA, JDBC and XML
  • Keep-Alive/Persistent Connections — keeps connections alive
    across multiple requests reducing the overhead associated with
    re-establishing a connection
  • Virtual Hosts — can be configured to support multiple domains or
    Web sites mapped to the same server each with their own content space
  • Expandable Architecture — can be expanded using Servlets,
    JSP, CGI and iScript
  • Scalable Solution — built-in load-balancing cluster redirector
    and cluster proxy create a robust, fault-resistant, scalable solution
    where a group of servers seamlessly work together to meet the needs of a
    large number of clients
  • Data Access — use JDBC to create data-driven Web-based applications
    that have access to a variety of data sources
  • Administration — supports centralized Web-based and Command-line
    administration of a single server or a group of servers
