MyNet.com is Turkey's #1 portal built with Enhydra Tomcat/JSP.

This successful B2C portal serves the Turkish speaking people allowing customized user sites and will be expanding into a web hosting service.

Due to internationalization issues, MyNet moved from Websphere to Enhydra, and found that what IBM could not deliver, Enhydra's open source supplied.

Here's some technical stats on the site:
Currently using 13 Sun Ultra 10's, 2 Sun Ultra 250's. Apache and Enhydra using Windows NT for personalized home page configuration. MyNet has over 100 dynamic pages running on Enhydra and uses an object oriented database called POET.

Lindauer-Dornier.com, "the world largest manufacturer of custom power looms" has been developing and running all its business-critical applications on an HP 3000 979KS/200 since the 1970s. Yet the company always deploys the latest technologies, as shown by the i-POS project: online ordering of replacement parts for power looms, realized with Apache Web Server, Java-based Enhydra and Oracle on the HP 3000.
For the most part, the power looms built by Lindauer Dornier are custom designs. In 1995, the company made the transition from paper documentation and replacement part catalogs to an electronic parts ordering system (EPOS). The provision of replacement parts – vital for maintaining the productivity of the looms – was thus accelerated significantly thanks to quicker retrieval and forwarding of order numbers to Customer Service. Yet Dornier developed the idea further.

When HP released software that permitted the deployment of the HP 3000 as a full-scale Web server, DORNIER saw the opportunity to process replacement part orders online, thus leading to a further streamlining of internal and external processes.
I-POs was developed by Transparent Solutions as a Java application under Windows NT. In May 1999, the Apache Web Server, Java and Oracle were initially installed on the HP 3000 in Lindau. With the support of HP Services, I-POs was then transferred to the HP 3000 without modifications. The implementation went smoothly and the Enhydra application was up and running within a few hours.

I-POs complements EPOS on CD-ROM and provides a fast, simple channel for replacement part orders. All data needed by individual customers for their orders is served in an up-to-date, customer-specific form by the Oracle database via the browser login. The needed replacement parts can be marked directly in the drawings. DORNIER then processes the orders immediately.

CleverContent.com is the proactive approach to image protection! The site allows images to be viewed but not popupcopied, printed, or captured, which protects the intellectual property of studios, magazines, press, photos agencies and anyone who wants to safeguard their digital assets.

The CleverContent server has software that runs in the background of your dedicated web server. It then Intercepts, encrypts, and passes on to the browser all images designated for protection. The CleverContent Viewer automatically installs as a plug-in on the visitor’s computer, which makes it possible to see CleverContent protected images
