Web Servers

reattore

Reattore is a simple single threaded HTTP server written in Java. Unlike most Java server applications, Reattore uses the socket channel features added in Java 1.4 to serve all requests from one thread, instead of spawning each request off to a new thread. In theory this provides better performance and allows the system to degrade well under high load.

 

winstone

Winstone is a servlet container that was written out of a desire to provide servlet functionality without the bloat that full J2EE compliance introduces. It is not intended to be a completely fully functional J2EE style servlet container (by this I mean supporting extraneous APIs unrelated to Servlets, such as JNDI, JavaMail, EJBs, etc) - this is left to Tomcat, Jetty, Resin, JRun, Weblogic et al. Sometimes you want just a simple servlet container - without all the other junk - that just goes. This is where Winstone is best suited. Winstone supports v2.4 servlet specification, and is available in a lite version (155KB) and a full version (329KB). It supports JSP 2.0 spec when apache jasper is enabled.

 

nanohttpd

A free, simple, tiny (1 java file!), nicely embeddable HTTP server in Java.

 

barehttp

The BareHTTP library implements a stripped down Java HTTP server able to satisfy only HTTP/0.9, 1.0, and 1.1 GET requests and HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 HEAD requests. It is suitable for embedded use in unit tests that require access to resources via HTTP. Also, it is convenient to use as a stripped down HTML documentation server.

 

caucho-resin

Resin's high-performance application server features load balancing for increased reliability. Resin encourages separation of content from style with its fast XML and XSL support.

 

rupy

Rupy is a tiny Java NIO HTTP server. Features:

 * NIO (Non-Blocking IO)
 * Asynchronous Reply
 * Chunked Transfer
 * Session Timeout
 * Hot-Deployment
 * Filter Chain

 

miniature-java-web-server

The Miniature Java Web Server includes most of functionality of real Web Servers including running servlets. The server is pretty small as in Java code as in result byte code. General purpose of the Web server is running and debugging servlets. However, if you host not so high loaded web site, you can use the server as a regular web server with some benefits against big brothers.

 

fizmez-web-server

It is a very simple webserver, written in Java and completely portable to any Java environment which supports sockets.
