    Question Developing a Server like Tomcat in Java

    How hard would it be to write a server like Tomcat in Java or another programming language?

    I have been enjoying working with UDP and TCP sockets molding them into simple client and server to pass data around my computer, and I was wonder how hard would it be to write a server from the ground up??

    I know that there has been at lest one OS written in Java using the JVM in the parts where it would normal be written in C or ASM.

    Almost nobody realizes it, but your Java SE distribution comes with a complete http server; here's its API documentation.

    kind regards,

    Why should it matter if I am posting it, in two different forums? I can hopefully get more diverse replies to any questions or comments.

    There's nothing wrong with posting on multiple forums. The problem is in your not notifying either site of your doing so. It may surprise you to know, but we value our free time as much as you do, and can get kind of upset if we put in great effort trying to answer a question only to find that it was answered previously in a cross post. If you respect us and the help we give you, then please supply links to cross-posts next time you do this. As for me, I'll wait to see what your reply is to my post before posting on any of your other questions.

    Do you just want me to just give a link? I do not understand what you mean? I used stack overflow, before that locked me out, so I could tried to get more of a computer science perspective of a reply then just a Java perspective reply on this site.

    Just give a link to the other forum(s) where you crossposted so that potential repliers can check whether or not your question has already been answered in another forum. Wasting time is a bad habit.
