Technical Aspect

Open Application Server is a software framework that can help to build and deploy server applications quickly. It allows to prototype servers in least amount of time. It has built the basic server functionality which is required in every other server. Furthermore it is inteded for situations where lots of requests are to be handled in short period of time.

Currently it is built in conjunction with apache web server to act as web application server. However it can act as server framework in any other situation as well. It is entirely written in C++ and implemented on Slackware Linux 9.0/FreeBSD4.7 for prototyping.
