TrustLeap G-WAN

G-WAN is a web server, with a small-footprint (50 KB). It supports GET, HEAD, POST, PUT, DELETE and OPTIONS, conditional requests and directory listings. G-WAN is also provably safer (speed is a side-effect of good designs). G-WAN is an application server (hence the other 50 KBs). Its C servlets (that you just 'edit & play') are as fast as static contents (benchmark the 'hello.c' servlet sample against a Perl, PHP, Java or ASP.Net equivalent). G-WAN is 16x faster than Apache and 5x faster than IIS 7.0/ASP.Net C#. Why use C rather than a 'safer' language for G-WAN servlets? 1. Perl, PHP, Java, ASP.Net and G-WAN are written in C, for a reason. 2. If you already know C, how many languages do you need to learn? 3. C can be as safe as any other language (see the 'crash.c' servlet). The best way to understand G-WAN's capabilities is to play with it.
