Kannel is a WAP gateway. It attempts to provide this essential part of the WAP infrastructure freely to everyone so the market potential for WAP services, both from wireless operators and specialized service providers, will be realized as efficiently as possible. It also works as an SMS gateway for GSM networks. Almost all GSM phones can use it to send and receive SMS messages, so this is a way to serve many more clients than just those using a WAP phone. Kannel was among the first WAP gateways to be certified as WAP 1.1 compliant.
mod_backhand is a load balancing module for Apache. It provides per-request HTTP redirection within a heterogeneous Apache server cluster. Each request is processed and run through a set of "candidacy functions" to determine which server is best suited to respond. The request is then proxied to that server. Facilities are in place to allow you to write your own dynamically loadable decision making algorithms. Everything about the request and the current availability of resources can be used in the decision-making process.
WIMS (WWW Interactive Mathematics Server) is a CGI Web application designed to host interactive mathematical educational activities such as exercises, computational math, and graphing tools. It features automatic score processing with strong anti-cheating mechanisms, virtual classes allowing teachers to guide/control student works, online exercise creation, animated graphics, a message board allowing inline mathematical formulas, and more. It can also be easily used for education within other disciplines.
Cherokee is a very fast, flexible and easy to configure Web server. It supports widespread technologies including FastCGI, SCGI, uWSGI, PHP, CGI, SSI, TLS and SSL encrypted connections, virtual hosts, authentication, on the fly encoding, load balancing, Apache compatible log files, database balancing, reverse HTTP proxy, traffic shaping, video streaming, and much more. A user friendly interface called cherokee-admin is provided for no-hassle configuration of the server. It allows you to configure the server from top to bottom without editing a text configuration file.
The C++ Portable Types Library (PTypes) is a simple alternative to the STL that includes multithreading and networking. It defines dynamic strings, character sets, variants, lists and other basic data types along with threads, synchronization primitives and IP sockets. It is portable across modern Unix and Windows systems and includes a sample HTTP daemon showing the full power of the library.
Dwarf is a modular Java framework for developing network server applications based on Internet standards. While focused on building service-based applications like Web servers, mail servers, and messaging services, it can also be used for other applications. The core consists of several packages, which provide a multithreaded kernel, security based on the standard Java 2 Platform Security architecture and the JAAS, logging, configuration, and a management system. Modularity and a fine-grained API allow one to extend the server, to reuse the existing services for a new application, or even create new services based on the existing ones.
Allegro Common Lisp is a full ANSI Common Lisp (1994) implementation. It contains many extensions, including 32- and 64-bit native compilation, efficient built-in memory management, foreign functions (for interfacing with other languages), multiprocessing, UNICODE and locale support, XML/HTML parsers, a Web client and server, GTK+ interface (1.2 and 2.0), Java interface, OLE interface (Windows only), profiler, regular expressions, an XML RPC implementation, native Lisp RPC, sockets, DLL and shared library support, and more.
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.
Forumtalk is the collective name for an Apache module and a server which, together, can be used to create high performance Web forums. The Apache module allows for special Forumtalk-tags to be placed within HTML templates which will be replaced by forum data. Currently, the server can store its data in a MySQL or a PostgreSQL database. Communication between the forum server and the Apache module is in XML, which makes it possible to easily extend Forumtalk with new clients.
