Jigsaw is an open-source Web server platform developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) that provides sample HTTP 1.1 implementation, advanced Java architecture and other features. It is considered a premier experimental platform for WC3 and the Internet community as a whole.
Jigsaw 2.0 is designed for technology demonstration purposes; it is not a full-fledged, ready-to-use Web server. It is designed as a project to portray new technology advancements for future HTTP and object-oriented Web servers.
Jigsaw is written in Java programming language, which is designed to work in an object-oriented framework. Java programming language is used in almost all new-generation Web servers. As such, it works with all operating systems that support the Java development kit. Jigsaw has been implemented successfully on Windows 95/98 NT, Windows 2000 and Solaris 2.x, but it also works on AIX, OS/2, BeOS and Mac OS. The use of Java programming language to develop Jigsaw allows it to be used across server platforms.
