Hi all,

AJPServer 0.2 is released.  Please look at


for further information and the tarball.

This is an 'alpha' quality release.  Your testing is much appreciated.

What is it?

AJP is a protocol for forwarding HTTP requests from web servers like
Apache or IIS to web application servers like Tomcat or Zope.

AJPServer is primarily meant to be used from within Zope's ZServer but
can possibly also be used stand-alone (with some coding).

The protocol connects Tomcat with web servers since quite a long time
and should therefore be reasonably mature.

Why yet another technology to connect Zope with web servers?

AJP has some nice features I haven't found elsewhere:

1) It's rather efficient: plain TCP transport, connection recycling,
   binary protocol etc.

2) It's independent of the web server: the Zope configuration and the
   underlying mechanism remains the same regardless of whether it is
   driven by Apache or IIS (there is also support for Netscape's and
   Lotus' web servers).

3) Some neat add-on features are also available: nice web server
   integration, ad hoc load balancing features etc.

For further information please look at the README file and the API
docs distributed with AJPServer.
