3rd Party Add-ons


Coldjava develops web-components on the base of Java servlets. The main product is Java Servlets Office Suite (JSOS). This product is a collection of Java servlets 'out-of-the-box,' ready to be used for building web-pages. JSOS plays the same role as a set of CGI scripts and can be used by webmasters for adding dynamic capabilities to their sites. JSOS components are like Lego blocks and can be used for fast assembling internet/intranet sites. JSOS has a rich set of servlets such as Message Board, Chat, File Manager, Calendar and many others, which can be used instead of CGI scripts to build your site.

According to Coldjava, they are the largest collection of Java servlets over the Net at this time. JSOS was tested with Enhydra 3.0 and supports WAP/WML. JSOS works with any servlets engine that supports version 2.0 or higher of the servlets specification, so it is very compatible with Enhydra (Java Servlets API 2.2).
