"Ganjo, a leading developer of web-based application products announced the release of Ganjo Application Server Version 2.0, a tag-based, cross-platform web application server written entirely in Java. The company is also actively considering releasing the product as an open-source project."

"We've been compared to Allaire's ColdFusion because we extend HTML through custom tags," said Steve Esemplare, Ganjo's co-founder and lead developer. "But our Java code base sets us apart from ColdFusion because our one product can be deployed on any platform, including Linux. With a total code size of only 125k this positions us very well for the emerging Linux market because Ganjo will run on all versions of Linux, and lowers the hardware requirements for companies who want to connect databases to web servers or build web-based applications."

"We recognize that ColdFusion is by far the leading tag-based web application server, and part of its success is due to leveraging the large pool of developers familiar with HTML. However," said Esemplare, "our experience indicates there are developers who believe such technology should not be proprietary and would prefer the code be accessible to everyone. For this reason we are seriously considering the open source model for Ganjo Application Server, and we encourage developers to visit our web page and participate in our survey."
