Server Operating Systems

The QuestFields Server is fully supported in Java 5 or 6 (JVM Standard Edition or Enterprise Edition versions 1.5 or 1.6), which runs on virtually any server operating system:

  • UNIX (including Sun Solaris, HP-UX, IBM AIX)
  • Linux (various distributions)
  • Windows (Windows 2000 or later)
  • Mac OS X
  • OpenVMS

The QuestFields Server software was designed to have a low system footprint. Memory usage can easily be fine tuned so it runs blazingly fast alongside your other server applications.

Application Servers

The QuestFields Server is based on the Java servlet standard that is used throughout enterprises worldwide. The QuestFields Server runs on application servers that comply to the servlet standard as defined by Sun Microsystems, including:

The QuestFields Server is distributed as a "web application archive" that can be deployed easily in the free Oracle GlassFish application server.
The QuestFields Server comes with full instructions for deployment and configuration in the free open-source application server Apache Tomcat.
Customers can deploy the QuestObjects Server software on their third-party licensed and supported IBM WebSphere application servers.
Customers can deploy the QuestObjects Server software on their third-party licensed and supported BEA WebLogic application servers.

Web Servers

The client components of the QuestField can either be served from the application server (see below) or from your current static web server, such as:

Apache HTTP Server
Microsoft ASP.NET Server (IIS)

The QuestFields Server can be installed on a dedicated machine, but it typically runs seamlessly on the same system that also runs the web server and/or the database. The QuestObjects Protocol (QOP) shares port 80 with other web applications (the QuestFields Server can be accessed through a proxy, or it can use a dedicated port). SSL is also fully supported.
