i-Jetty: The First Android Web/App Server

Webtide, the lead developer of the Jetty open source Web server, says it has built the first Web and application server for Google’s Android mobile platform, 3G.co.uk reports.

AndroidSDK.jpgAs 3G.co.uk explains it, i-Jetty, as the Android version of the server is called, “allows users to serve data stored on the phone, such as contact details, system settings and call log, within a browser window. It also adds functionality that will let users modify and save changes, view and listen to multimedia files and make phone calls.”

“This represents yet another emphatic validation of Jetty’s architecture and scalability,” said Webtide CEO Adam Lieber. “Jetty’s small footprint has always been attractive to embedded device developers, and now with a Jetty server available on Android, we can truly claim to run on the gamut of computing environments – all the way from mobile devices to high-end server hardware.”
