Want to start running Web applications, but your system is too small? Creating and Administrating a Web server to complicated and confusing? Dealing with the maintenance too time consuming? Concerned that ASF Tomcat is being withdrawn from service? The IBM Integrated Web Application Server for i is for you.

The integrated Web application server integrates a Web-servlet container into IBM i operating system. This Web container includes the basics for getting Servlet and JSP applications up and running quickly and effectively on the Web. The integrated Web application server is a great place to prototype new applications or to run existing small-footprint or low-use applications. You can consider the integrated Web application server as an entry point to the Web.

Administration is easy and straight forward using the IBM Web Administration for i graphical user interface (GUI). Since this Web container is part of the operating system, there are no additional products to install and maintenance is handled via IBM i PTFs. Learn how this 'i' friendly Web container can quickly and easily get you started on the road to the Web.

Learning Objectives: The user will be able to successfully create an application server for deploying their own applications or an ISV application.
