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.

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