iWebSrv significantly reduces application implementation time and expense and facilitates ease of implementation worldwide using the latest and most effective Web services and IBM i software, tools and products. You can find below the specific features and capabilities of the iWebSrv solution.
Thin Architecture – Resource Lite
Every effort has been made to keep iWebSev as thin and resource lite as possible – yet powerful, robust and feature rich.
Because of iWebSrv’s thin architecture, it is extremely fast and enables quick response times.
Uses native IBM i Apache server
The Apache server is one of the most popular and widely used web servers.
Apache is an open-source HTTP server that implements current HTTP standards with a focus on being secure, highly configurable, and easily extensible.
