Application Server Requirements for the eiPlatform
The eiPlatform is compatible with all of the popular application servers, so it is certain to work within your IT infrastructure. All of the components are also easily configurable and extensible through open APIs.
These application servers include:
- Apache Tomcat – is an open source servlet container developed by the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) which implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications from Sun Microsystems. Apache Tomcat provides a “pure Java” HTTP web server environment for Java code to run.
- Glassfish – is an open source application server project led by Sun Microsystems for the Java EE platform. The proprietary version is called Oracle GlassFish Enterprise Server. GlassFish is free software, dual-licensed under two free software licenses: the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) and the GNU General Public License (GPL) with the classpath exception.
- WebSphere – or IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) operates and integrates electronic business applications across multiple computing platforms, using Java-based Web technologies. Websphere includes both the run-time components and the tools to develop applications that will run on WAS.
- JBoss – or JBoss AS is a free software/open-source Java EE-based application server. JBoss is Java-based and the JBoss application server operates cross-platform and is usable on any operating system that supports Java.
- WebLogic – WebLogic consists of a Java EE platform product family that includes a Java EE application server, WebLogic Application Server (enterprise portal), WebLogic Portal (Enterprise Application Integration platform) a transaction server and infrastructure, WebLogic Tuxedo (telecommunication platform), WebLogic Communication Platform and an HTTP web server. WebLogic is owned by Oracle Corporation.
