This is a complete but simple Web Server for the HTTP protocol. It can help you get an overall picture of how a web server works by removing the complex details of a bigger server like Apache Tomcat. It doesn't support POST requests, though. It comes with an example website made from javadocs and lets you configure through an XML file.
Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come
out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

I was trying to keep it as simple as possible. If you wanted to support server side scripting languages, you'd just have to handle requests for those files differently. The FileHTTPRequestHandler currently just responds with file contents. You'd just have to, instead, interpret the contents of PHP files for them to work. You could make your own server side scripting language too. I just wanted to keep it simple by leaving those extras out. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
I don't know why but the batch files were stripped from the archive when uploaded. The main application class is webServer.WebServerRunner so you can run it using java webServer.webServerRunner 4550. The last number is the port. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
i am not a beginner nut this goes way above my head.please tell me more about it and also how to run it.plsss. (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
