Java Server Pages (JSP) Now Included in iTools

Apache Foundation's Tomcat package brings JSP to Macintosh

Santa Barbara, CA, August 29, 2000. Tenon Intersystems today announced the availability of JSP™ for Mac OS X Server. Tenon's iTools, an Apache web server toolsuite for Mac OS X Server, now includes support for Java Server Pages™. Tenon's implementation of JSP is an OS X Server port of Tomcat, a world-class implementation of Java Servlet 2.2 and Java Server Pages 1.1. Tomcat is a subproject of the Apache Foundation's Jakarta Project designed to provide open source commercial-quality Java server solutions. Since the beginning of the year, there have been more than a quarter of a million downloads of Tomcat, but until this port JSP was not available on Apple's Mac OS X Server platform.

Brison Infotainment LLC needed a robust, fast server capable of moving a variety of data, including streaming video. Their server solution of choice was Mac OS X Server. "OS X Server, by itself, is about 75% of the solution," noted Brian Ross, President of Brison Infotainment. "We went to Tenon, whose iTools product delivers the rest of the robust server tools that we needed to have a truly world-class server." "Tenon's port of Tomcat is a landmark in the development of the OS X platform, " noted Ross. "It will support Apple's work in providing high-quality Java applications to its servers, and it will make powerful SQL databases like OpenBase or FrontBase available to developers who would rather use a product like Dreamweaver UltraDev than code manually."

Java Server Pages enables web designers to develop and maintain dynamic web pages using XML technology that lets designers change page layouts without altering the underlying dynamic content. By separating page logic from design and display, JSP makes it faster and easier to build web-based applications. The combination of Java Servlets (server-side modules to extend the capabilities of a web server) and JSP provide a platform-independent, extensible way to design web sites, putting Macintosh firmly in the JSP Application Server arena. iTools and Tomcat are downloadable from the Tenon web site: .
