WASP download of XP versions now fixed

I’ve just noticed a problem with downloading the XP versions of WASP. This is now fixed. The XP versions can now be downloaded correctly again from here. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

A new release of WASP, now with SSL/TLS support

We’ve just released a new version of WASP, our pluggable application server platform. This release is built with release 6.5.2 of The Server Framework and includes support for secure TCP connections using SSL/TLS via our SChannel Option pack. Setting up a secure TCP endpoint with WASP is easy, simply add the Secure configuration option to the <EndPoint> node like this: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <Configuration> <WASP> <TCP> <Endpoints> <EndPoint Name="Echo Server" Port="5050" HandlerDLL="[CONFIG]\EchoServer.

An introduction to WASP

WASP is, at heart, simply another example server for The Server Framework, but it’s also something a little new. Up until now potential clients have been able to look at the example servers source code and ask for pre-built executables for testing. The thing is, the examples are just that, examples and whilst release 6.2 of The Server Framework ships with over 70 examples (see here) they still only show small pieces of functionality in isolation.
