Emersion Platform Overview
Currently Platform is developing as Web Applications Integration Platform. That means that you, as web applications developer, may deploy your standard JSP/Servlet applications as plug-ins into the Platform.
For now "core" plug-ins that form Platform technical basis are:
- Platform Application "entry point" plug-in. It handles Platform initializing and start up.
- "Web Server Application" plug-in - the server-side application that is actually running when Platform gets started.
- The Apache Jakarta Tomcat 5.5 wrapper plug-in. This is actually JSP/Servlet container embedded into Platform.
- "Glue" or "adapter" style plug-in to run Tomcat in embedded mode within Platform.
- The Apache Struts Web Application Framework wrapper plug-in.
- Platform Workplace base plug-in.
