Embedthis Appweb has been used in a wide variety of web server solutions. It is well suited to embedding in enterprise applications or embedded devices. While there may be better choices if you are building a large scale public e-Commerce web site, there is no better web server to use than Appweb if you want to embed the server in your devices or applications.
This solutions section will explain how you can best use Embedthis Appweb for your target environment.
If you are creating an embedded system and need web access to that system for management or to communicate with your applications, then Appweb is an ideal solution. It is compact and fast and will consume few precious system resources while it offers a secure HTTP channel to your devices.
Appweb is self-contained with no external references. So you can easily put an entire web site on a CD or USB key ring. Even if you are using PHP and have many pages to your application, it is easily stored on a key ring!
Personal Web Servers
If you need a personal web server to test out your application before deployment or you need a personal web server to actually host your app, then Appweb is the BIG / little web server for you. Big on security and performance and little on impact to your system.
Enterprise applications sometimes need web connectivity "out-of-the-box". Integrating with ISS or other enterprise web servers is often more complex than desired. By including Appweb with your application, it can be web-accessible from the first moment without complex configuration or administrative hurdles.
