Open Web Server launched!

I'm really excited to announce that we have completed the work to oped source the core of Sun Java System Web Server under the BSD license. This project offers a sub-set of Sun Java System Web Server's features, but is the same highly scalable HTTP server that drives many of the most demanding and secure Web sites.

The project site is here.

A feature comparison of Open Web Server and Sun Java System Web Server is here.

Developer documentation and build instructions are here.

Open Web Server is a part of the larger Web Stack community within the OpenSolaris project.

We welcome your feedback and participation within the OpenSolaris Web Stack community.

Open Sourcing Sun Web Stack, Web Server, Web Proxy Server

Today at OSCON Sun announced many things that I think are cool, but two of them have special value to me.

  1.  We are open sourcing the core functionality of our Web Server (known variously as Sun Java System Web Server, Sun ONE Web Server, iPlanet Web Server, Netscape Enterprise Server) and our Web proxy Server (known by the same various brands as our Web Server). The code will be under the BSD license providing the maximum possible portability of the project, and  will bring Sun more fully into the open source HTTP server community. This will happen on the OpenSolaris Web Stack community sometime in CYQ3 2008.
  2. Sun will be offering production support for the \*AMP stack on Solaris, OpenSolaris, and various Linux flavors. The Sun Web Stack will be a product of the OpenSolaris Web Stack community and a continuation of the work already released as Cool Stack. Support wilol be available in CYQ3 2008.

Exciting times around the ol' Web Tier water dispenser.
