EAServer 4.1 Technical White Paper
Application servers enable businesses to build and deploy reliable and scalable e-business applications. Most businesses are looking not only at how to build e-business applications, but also how to allow electronic access to those applications via computer-to-computer interaction, as well as how to better hook those applications seamlessly into their existing infrastructure. An agile application server can serve as the linchpin that will unify and manage business operations. Business functions can be accessed via a browser or as a web service and can interact with any other function or user within, or optionally outside, the entire organization.
