Velocity Web Server or Velocity for short is a web server application that makes it absolutely possible to run a server with minimal setup.
The ambition behind Velocity is to be able to support languages such as PHP or Python as well as ZPE with relative ease. In fact, the support for these languages only requires about 10 lines of Java code and the rest is handled by the server.
Support for ZPE was added in the first version through ZPE's included Velocity Web Server Handler interface and plugin combination. Simply put the ZPE runtime in the plugins folder and ZPE is enabled.
Like ZPE, Velocity Web Server is written in the cross-platform Java programming language meaning it can be used on millions of devices.
Velocity Web Server makes it so easy to build and package a module for it. Modules can run another langauge or they can run native Java. All that is required to make them respond is how they deal with the request.
Velocity Web Server makes it so easy to run a web server of your own. Simply double-click the JAR file and start the server.
Velocity Web Server is also very fast. This is one of the main ambitions of the development of the server.
It does this by reducing the number of things that it needs to load when it is requested and deals with requests through separate threads.
Velocity Web Server is free and always will be. Part of the project will be open source and free too.
