Dwarf Server Framework is a Java technology-based class library for developing network server applications. It has been designed mainly to support building of TCP/IP-based network servers, like web servers, mail servers, streaming servers, etc. However, we hope that it can be used for building a more general service-based applications, too.
The framework emphasizes on simple design, very concise API, lightweight implementation and a reduced learning curve. It is not an all-purpose universal wheel, but it tries to support the server development in a very clear, simple and effective way.
It requires Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.4 or higher for the basic runtime operation. The Java 2 Software Development Kit (JDK) version 1.4 or higher is required for the developing your own applications. No additional extensions are needed for the initial runtime or development setup.
