Sun Web Server
by William Nelson, Arvind Srinivasan, and Murthy Chintalapati
The Sun Java System Web Server (Sun Web Server) is a freely available, high-performance, feature-rich HTTP server that provides a simple, user-friendly administration interface. In addition to being a high-performance static-content delivery engine for items such as images and HTML documents, the Sun Web Server also supports various server-side languages and technologies such as JavaServer Pages, Java Servlets, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby on Rails, Active Server Pages (ASP) and Coldfusion. This book presents a handy guide to day-to-day tasks such as installation, configuration, cluster-management, monitoring and troubleshooting. It also presents insights to developers and architects interested in understanding Sun Web Server internals and extending the server functionality with a variety of dynamic content technologies. Together with information for deployers on sizing/tuning, reference configurations used in Web 2.0-style sites, this book provides a guide for the users of the world's most scalable and most versatile web infrastructure software.
