What is SIwpas?

SIwpas aim is to integrate Apache Software Foundation(ASF) JavaTM Platform,· Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6) Web Profile Specification related projects· for producing a Java EE 6 Web Profile compatible server.To produce fully Java EE 6· Web Profile compatible container implementation, we have written unimplemented· features of those requirements that are imposed by Java EE 6 specification. Moreover, we have written integration module that integrates those projects to work with each other correctly.

If there is no compatible implementation of the required specification in ASF,· we use open source implementation that has been developed elsewhere. SIwpas is licensed under the ASL-2.0 (Apache License Version 2.0).

*NOTE* : Currently, SIwpas is not a certified Java EE Web Profile Server.·When we say compatible it means that it contains technologies that are·listed in Java EE Web Profile Specification. It does not mean that it has·passed Java EE Web Profile TCK suite. Certification is under our radar!
