JBoss Web Server is an enterprise ready web server designed for medium
and large applications, based on the Apache Tomcat. It is meant to be
used as a replacement for the standard Web servers on all major
platforms. JBoss Web Server provides organizations with a single
deployment platform for Java Server Pages (JSP) and Java Servlet
technologies, Microsoft .NET, PHP, and CGI. It uses a genuine high
performance hybrid technology that incorporates the best of the most
recent OS technologies for processing high volume data, while keeping
all the reference Java specifications. It supports both in and out of
the process execution of CGI and PHP scripts, as well as .NET
applications. The hybrid technology model offers the best from
threading and event processing models, and that makes the JBoss Web
Server one of the fastest and most scalable web servers in the market.
