Application Servers

Application Servers manage the communication between applications and application components. Several application servers specialize in Web development, like Zope, ColdFusion, or Zend, and others specialize in broader development areas, like Enhydra or BEA Weblogic. Application servers generally manage a set of modules that provide business logic, security, and connection to databases.

An integration server like is essential for deploying applications that must access data and functionality from disparate systems. In the age of Web and wireless application development, many software engineers face the frustrating task of connecting to enterprise applications and legacy systems. adapters permit software developed under the auspices of an application server platform to quickly and easily integrate with other systems.

We currently have projects for the following application servers:

If you have experience in these systems and would like to contribute to adapter development and/or testing, visit the project page to become a participant. Our community is also looking for project leaders for application server adapters like these:
