Want a fast, easy way to deploy Web applications on IBM i? Does WebSphere Application Server seem too daunting? IBM Integrated Web Application Server for i is the solution!
Written by Steve Pitcher
IBM Integrated Web Application Server for i (IAS) is a lightweight Java-based Web application server. Although released as a PTF in IBM i 5.4, if you're running IBM i 6.1 or 7.1, the product is as an integrated component of the operating environment.
What does this offer you? Well, if you have a workload you want to quickly deploy on IBM i via the Web, it means that you don't have to spend time and system resources configuring, deploying, and maintaining a WebSphere Application Server instance to do the job. So instead of using a WebSphere backhoe to dig your fence post holes, you get to use a gas-powered IAS auger.
