Igor Popik has written an NSAPI filter for Sun ONE Web Server 6.1 that automatically removes unnecessary whitespace from HTML pages. If your HTML looks like most sites', this filter should give a substantial performance boost to your dialup users.
Igor's made the source code and binaries freely available on his website.

A while back, I mentioned how to configure 301 permanent redirects in Sun ONE Web Server 6.1. I just thought I'd mention that it's even easier in Sun Java System Web Server 7. By default, Web Server creates directives like the following in the obj.conf configuration file:
NameTrans fn="redirect" from="/path" url="http://server.example.com"
The above configures a 302 Moved Temporarily redirect. Starting in Web Server 7, you can add a
status="301" parameter to indicate you want a 301 Moved Permanently redirect instead:
NameTrans fn="redirect" from="/path" url="http://server.example.com" status="301"
It's that easy. The Sun Java System Web Server 7 Technology Preview is out now, and it's free.

crhyne notes that the most recent patch levels of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 have problems with the icons Sun ONE Web Server uses in directory listings. This appears to be an IE bug that was introduced in version 6.0.2900.2180 when Microsoft tried to fix IE's handling of malicious image files. A future Web Server service pack should include a work around.
In the meantime, you can manually replace the icons in Web Server's
ns-icons directory with the following images:

Sun will be holding a User Group meeting in New York on April 25. I'll be there. If you use any flavour of our web server -- iPlanet Web Server, Sun ONE Web Server, or Sun Java System Web Server -- I'd like you to be there, too![Read More]
