Universal Web Server




A universal Web server is a single Web server that allows programmers to create Web applications in different programming languages and different Web application paradigms (e.g., Java servlets, PHP scripts) and hosts these in a secure and efficient environment. Thus it provides a superset of the functionality available with other systems and allows for easy component instantiation in a distributed digital library system.
