21.0 Web Services

The Web and application services in Open Enterprise Server 2 support the creation and deployment of Web sites and Web applications that leverage the widespread availability of Internet-based protocols and tools.

With the proper Web components in place, a server can host dynamic Web sites where the content changes according to selections made by the user. You can also run any of the hundreds of free Web applications that can be downloaded from the Internet. Web and application services make it easy to build your own dynamic Web content and create customized Web database applications.
