Ada Web Server development files

AWS is a complete framework to develop Web based applications. The main part of the framework is the embedded Web server. This small yet powerful Web server can be embedded into your application so your application will be able to talk with a Web browser. Around this Web server a lot of services have been developed. - A Web parameters module. This module takes care of retrieving the forms or URL parameters and to build an associative table for easy access. - A session server, this is a very important module to be able to keep client's data from page to page. - Support SOAP to develop Web Services. - A tool to generate Web Services stubs/skeletons from a WSDL document. - A template parser, this module makes it possible to completely separate the Web design from the code. No more scripting into your Web page. - Support for Secure Sockets (HTTPS/SSL), this is based on the GNU TLS library. - Support for large servers using dispatchers based on URI, request methods. - Support for virtual hosting (dispatchers based on the host name). - Support for server push. - A directory browser ready to be used in any application. - A status page to get many information about the current AWS server. - A log module. Log files keep information about all resources requested to the server. - Hotplug modules which can be loaded/unloaded dynamically to add specific features to a server. - A communication API to exchange data between applications using the HTTP protocol. - A configuration API to tune/change the server parameters without recompilation. - A client API to retrieve any Web page from a Web site. - A Web Page service to build a simple static page server. - Support for SMTP, LDAP and Jabber protocols.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
