Web Servers


Tomcat is the servlet container that is used in the official Reference Implementation for the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies. The Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages specifications are developed by Sun under the Java Community Process.



VQEmbWeb is a very minimal embedded web server for Java (5 or greater). The jar is 12K in size and the only dependency is Apache log4J. It supports plain HTTP and HTTPS over SSL. To use it, just use the EmbeddedServer.createInstance() method, passing in the port to open the server on and an instance of HttpRequestHandler to handle the requests. Your HttpRequestHandler has to return a Response object. The URL parameters are handed to you in their unencoded form in the map. The URL without the parameters included is in the url string. There are also methods for:

 * setting a redirect
 * returning a 404 or a 500
 * setting the content type
 * setting binary, rather than text content



Jetty is a 100% Java HTTP Server and Servlet Container. This means that you do not need to configure and run a separate web server (like Apache) in order to use java, servlets and JSPs to generate dynamic content. Jetty is a fully featured web server for static and dynamic content. Unlike separate server/container solutions, this means that your web server and web application run in the same process, without interconnection overheads and complications. Furthermore, as a pure java component, Jetty can be simply included in your application for demonstration, distribution or deployment. Jetty is available on all Java supported platforms.



Xerver is an advanced free GNU GPL Web and FTP server.



Sambuca is a Java HTTP Server framework that allows developers to embed a HTTP server directly in their applications with custom HTTP Request Handlers, so that their application can directly process incoming HTTP Requests and easily send back HTTP formatted responses to the requesting client. Applications can host standalone HTTP Services such as Web Service without having to deploy and integrate with a full application server such as Tomcat, JBoss, or WebLogic.
