Projects / LiteWebServer


LiteWebServer (LWS) is a small, modular Web server and Java web container. It is based on code from Apache's popular Tomcat server, tweaked and extended for easier installation and management. It consists of a set of modules that can be installed separately, so you can install and manage exactly the features you need. The base module provides basic Web server features (HTTP/1.1 support) and support for the Servlet API. Add-on modules provide additional features, such as JSP support. Installing new modules and upgrading or removing existing modules is as easy as can be with the bundled JustGetIt module manager.
