Whitebeam 1.3.14 Web Application Server

Whitebeam is a mature web-application server provided as an Apache module providing server-side JavaScript. This is a minor release that neverless further extends Whitebeam's capabilities to include SFTP and FTP up/download capabilities and enhances the file storage mechanism.

Application development is similar to client-side technologies - based around XML, JavaScript and a server-side DOM. The PostgreSQL database provides high-performance data storage.

Examples of real-world use here :

Release 1.3.14 contains:
+ Provide web applications with access to FTP/SFTP access to file upload and download
+ Timestamps on file objects and the ability to sort based on a number of fields.
+ Access to date/time stamps on contact records.

Whitebeam is released under a BSD style license - enabling more flexible adoption of this key server-side technology.

Release details can be found at http://www.whitebeam.org/CHANGELOG.rhtm.

The major design aims for Whitebeam are simplicity of application development, familiarity with existing client side technologies, security, scalability (Whitebeam provides an unlimited number of front end web servers working concurrently) and reliability.

The commercial roots for Whitebeam have led to a complete set of application development documentation and a number of useful examples, including a Content Management application as well as a set of 'cookbook' examples to help new developers build applications. All the documentation is available on the Whitebeam homepage at: http://www.whitebeam.org
