Welcome to WSO2 Application Server (WSO2 AppServer)

[Download] | [Documentation Home] | [Release Note]

The WSO2 Application Server platform, is the only enterprise-class platform for application hosting and enterprise integration that is completely open and agreed across the industry. Based on the concept of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), the Web services specifications support secure, reliable and transactional integration based on the concept of loose coupling, which is inherently scalable. Many vendors have "bolted on" support for Web services and XML to their existing proprietary product solutions. WSO2 has created a new platform that cuts out unnecessary layers, supporting the full WS-* stack in a simple, clean, lightweight model, making it easier to develop, deploy and run applications.

With WSO2 AppServer users can deploy, manage, monitor their web applications, directly from the AppServer management console. Coupled with identity integration in the Carbon platform, AppServer provides unified managing environment for administrators, to work with their web-application deployment as well as the web-services deployment

WSO2 AppServer is an application server for Web services. With its built in high-performance Web server, full support for XML, SOAP, WSDL, and support for reliable, secure communications, WSO2 AppServer makes it simple and effective to create, consume and manage Web services.

WSO2 AppServer supports most of the major components of the WS-* stack and provides an integrated runtime that is easy for developers and administrators to use.

WS-* Support
