APACHE JSERV
from the Java Apache Project

Apache JServ is a 100% Pure Java servlet engine fully compliant with the JavaSoft Java Servlet APIs 2.0 specification. JServ is the result of the open volunteer project known as the Java Apache Project, which believes in the great value of complete portability between different servlet platforms, together with portability of Java binary code.
The Project worked very closely with JavaSoft and other JVM implementers to provide correct interpretations or Java specifications both for servlets and for the Java language itself and the result is a pure servlet engine that works on any "version 1.1 compliant" Java Virtual Machine and may execute any Java servlet compliant with version 2.0.

To obtain such complete abstraction from native environments, Apache JServ 1.0 was designed as a server application serving requests made with a specific protocol (simply enough named Apache JServ Protocol). Then, included modules allow the Web server to "translate" servlet requests and forward them to the right servlet engine.

At this moment the Apache JServ distribution contains only a module for the Apache Web Server (mod_jserv).
