Webware for Python is a 'Python-Powered Internet Platform' that runs servlets in a manner similar to Java servlets. WebKit is the name of Webware's application server. For more details, please visit http://webware.sourceforge.net/.
All comments below refer to the official version of Webware, the DamnSimple!
offshoot at ?, and the now-abandoned WebwareExperimental implementation at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/expwebware/, except where noted. All the
implementations are 95% identical to the servlet writer: their differences lie
in their internal structure and configuration files. One difference is that
the executable you run to launch standard Webware is called
whereas in WebwareExperimental it's called
webkit. But to servlets
they're both "WebKit, Webware's application server", so it's one half dozen to
the other. In this document, we generally use the term WebKit to refer
to the currently-running application server.
