LiteWebServer(LWS) is a small (roughly 1 MB), modular web server and Java web container. It is based on code from Apache's popular Tomcat server, tweaked and extended for easier installation and management, with professional support services offered through various types of support licenses.

LWS consists of a set of modules that can be installed separately, so you only need to install and manage exactly the features you need. The base module provides basic web server features (HTTP/1.1 support) and support for the Servlet API. Add-on modules provide additional features, such as JSP support. Click on a module name in the left menu to learn more about it.

Installing new modules and upgrading or removing existing modules is as easy as can be with the bundled JustGetIt™ module manager. The module manager uses a web service on our web site to see what modules are currently available and compares the list to the modules you already have installed. It also knows about dependencies between the modules, so when you select a module you want, it figures out what other modules you need and installs and enables them all automatically.

LWS's small size also makes it ideal for embedding in other Java applications, for instance to provide a web base management interface to an application. The LWS API makes it very easy to let the embedding application configure the server, as well as start, stop or restart the server at will.
