With such a high productivity
factor that Smalltalk gives us, reaction times to market changes have enabled us to beat most of our competitors.

Cincom Smalltalk™ Foundation Series: SiouX

SiouX is a general-purpose Web server that uses both HTTP and HTTPS protocols and Net/Xtreams.  SiouX also rehosts Seaside and Web Services.

For those who are interested in moving Web apps to SiouX, the new framework provides a secure, efficient and extensible server with HTTP services that are in sync with the current HTTP standards.

SiouX offers:

  • Streaming responses
  • A focus on an efficient and scalable implementation
  • A server that can be configured to listen on multiple ports (multiple listeners)
  • Chunked responses
  • Gzipping
  • SSL and TLS support
  • Flexible and easy-to-maintain configuration
  • The ability to run different Web applications from the same address
  • Announcements based on the server event notification
