The main tool is the WebSphere Application Server (WAS) which is an application server that allows users to connect to specific websites through Java applications or servlets, which are Java programs that run through a server instead of the individual computer like a Java app. IT professionals can adapt servlets to run instead of traditional common gateway interface scripts, known as CGI, allowing for a faster process speed.
The software can also support standard interface like Java Database Connectivity (JCBC) and its design allows it to be used across a number of varying operating system platforms, with specific editions offered to cater for the needs of small-to-medium sized businesses to large enterprises.
WebSphere also has the capabilities to offer developers the ability to create and manage web pages through the Studio application, which supports Windows NT, AIX, Solaris, OS/2 and OS/390 operating systems. Developers can also test web pages and Java applications with immediate effect through Apache.
