Open Source Servers
* Current release is under beta test.
* Portable: A 100% pure Java application based on the Java 2
platform and on top of JavaMail extentions.
* Protocol abstraction: protocols are seen only as "communication
languages". Apache James is not tied to any particular protocol
but follows an abstracted server design (almost like JavaMail did
on the client side)
* Handles both mail transport and storage in a single server.
(Works without the need or any other server or solution.)
* Servlet support: supports MailServlet -- an easy-to-write,
easy-to-use pattern allow to build powerful mail systems.
Examples: a mailet to send mails as fax or voice, filter mailets,
translator, mailing list, newspaper via mail etc.
* Rresource abstraction: like protocols, resources are abstracted
and work through defined interfaces. Highly modular. Plans to
reuse solutions from other projects (Tyrex, Cocoon etc).
* Secure and multi-threaded design: based on the technology
developed for the Apache JServ servlet engine. A careful,
security-oriented, full multi-threaded design for performance,
scalability and mission-critical use.
* Anything else you may want if you help us write it :-)
This note from the doc of the Server Pages Foundation Classes
was also interesting:
"When building server side applications for the Web, independently
of the language used (Java, PHP, Perl, etc), a lot of time is spent
writing embedded HTML code and dealing with the fact that HTTP is a
The SPFC appears to be a language-independent solution.

interactive question and answer sessions into a FAQ, and ask
questions interactively when the FAQ doesn't answer them.
