Shepherd is an object-oriented
server framework. The purpose of this framework is to deliver high
performance, extensible, scalable, and low-resource Internet servers.
For many, it is necessary
to run SMTP, POP3, DNS, HTTP, FTP, and other servers all on one
machine. Often, those servers use separate thread pools, separate
user lists, separate access control lists, etc. With all of the
extra resources laying around in each server, system performance
suffers. Shepherd is designed to fix that problem.
j-Chat is a Java chat
system capable of supporting multiple chat rooms, access controlled
chat rooms, multiple hosts, and simple logging. Both the client
and server are implemented in Java making it easy to use on any
Java 1.1 system.
