Webtester is an application which is intended to be used in the testing and validation of Web-based applications. By reading an XML configuration file, the application is able to call URLs and use regular expressions to examine the results. Features include support for SSL, cookies, and variable assignment/substitution when sending and examining data.
The dkLab Apache is a patched Apache distribution for those who plan to use the Apache Web server to serve multiple separate sites working under different, fully separated, and independent Unix users. It does not require you to install any OS kernel modules or disable setuid, and works correctly and intelligently with KeepAlive turned on and MaxRequestsPerChild greater than 1.
The goal of the Apache Tomcat Project is to provide commercial-quality server solutions based on the Java Platform that are developed in an open and cooperative fashion. Tomcat 3.x is an implementation of the Java Servlet 2.2 and JavaServer Pages 1.1 Specifications. Tomcat 4.x is an implementation of the Java Servlet 2.3 and JavaServer Pages 1.2 Specifications, and is a re-implementation of the Tomcat servlet engine from the ground up. The current branch, Tomcat 5.x, is an implementation of the Java Servlet 2.4 and JavaServer Pages 2.0 specifications, with increased attention to scalability, reliability, and management functionality.
The Apache/Perl integration project brings together the full power of the Perl programming language and the Apache HTTP server. With mod_perl it is possible to write Apache modules entirely in Perl. In addition, the persistent interpreter embedded in the server avoids the overhead of starting an external interpreter and the penalty of Perl start-up time.
mod_vhs is an Apache 2.2+ Web server module allowing mass virtual hosting without the need for file-based configuration. The virtual host paths are translated from any database supported by mod_ldap or mod_dbd at request time from MySQL, LDAP, PAM, or a system password file. PHP security can be basically auto-configured from the database using this module. Requests are cached by mod_ldap when configured.
Load is a utility for Web application and SOAP-based Web services performance and scalability testing. It features a scripting language and a library of test objects for the creation of intelligent agents that drive the Web application or SOAP-based Web service. Running hundreds of agents concurrently shows how your software performs in production environments. Load is a Java application that runs on Linux, Solaris, NT, Win2000, and Macintosh. While Load continues to be maintained, the next generation is the TestMaker program.
rpaf changes the remote address of the client on incoming proxy requests. It is used in backend servers that needs to know the IP of the client, and works in conjunction with mod_proxy_add_forward (which sets the X-Forwarded-For header). When an X-Host header exists rpaf will take the hostname found here, put it into Apache, and update the virtualhost settings so that you can serve virtualhosts on the backend. It includes modules for both Apache 1.3 and 2.0.
