In Pictures: 15 high-impact Apache projects

From Harmony to Hadoop, Apache has been a powerful contributor to the open source ecosystem

Tomcat

This implementation of Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies is an Apache veteran since 1999. Tomcat is effectively a Java application server, and it has spawned such commercial products as Tcat Server from Mulesoft and VMware vFabric tc Server. There is also Apache TomEE, which is essentially the Java EE 6 Web Profile version of Tomcat. Plans for Tomcat 8 include support for Servlet 3.1 specification.

“The big new feature there is support for non-blocking I/O, which should enable highly scalable apps to be written more easily,” says Mark Thomas, a longtime participant in Apache’s development and release manager for Tomcat 4 and 7. WebSocket communications support, meanwhile, should help make applications more scalable by handling more messages.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
