Goldwater is a lightweight middleware server that delivers e-business solutions. It supports a wide range of Internet standards, databases and application development tools, making it extremely versatile. It lets users integrate all popular development languages and databases, servers, browsers and wireless devices. It comes with a set of simple API libraries and modules, allowing a choice of languages to be used to develop business logic servers. Servers written in different languages can be mixed and can also communicate freely provided they use the same data interchange format. Goldwater allows both XML and custom encapsulation of objects and message data, transporting them via either a proprietary protocol or the HTTP/1.1 protocol. This lets Goldwater integrate with existing firewall and routing configurations with little or no network re-configuration. Since the package is open regarding object and data encapsulation, clients facing data presentation servers can render their output in XML, a custom data stream, or pass this data untreated to client applications. Third party applications that can share data via XML will integrate easily into enterprise applications built on a Goldwater famework.
