Where to Go from Here

Now that the product is installed and running, it is time to find out more about what can be done with the Web Server/400 product. This page suggests some of the more important sections to read and some of the changes that have been made to the product since version 1.2.

Below are some useful sections to read before going much further with Web Server/400.

New since Web Server/400 Version 1.2

Natonal Language Support
Support for serving double- and mixed-byte content has now been included in the product.

IFS File CCSID Override Abilities
Support for mixed byte files and the ability to override incorrect IFS code pages is now included.

Authentication User Storage
Previous versions of Web Server/400 allowed for the storage of authentication user information in stream files. You can now choose to store users in stream files or database files (for authentication only, not for Webulator/400).

The way that user passwords are stored (for authentication only, not for Webulator/400) has also changed since the availability of Web Server/400 version 1.2. The Web Server can be configured to use the new Normalized mode of password encoding.

Server Identification Support
Used to identify and describe a server. The server identifier is used in the naming of the server jobs and objects, and is supported by the server start and end commands.

Server Start and End Command Enhancements.
Used particularly during the start of operations for an AS/400, or for the start of TCP/IP operations, the STRWWW command now has enhanced functionality that waits for TCP/IP to be active before beginning server activity.

In addition, it is now possible to end all Web Server/400 activity via the ENDWWW command.

Server Performance
Many enhancements have been included to achieve improved performance by incorporating more efficient processes and calls to system functions. Server performance can be affected by many factors. Advanced configuration provides information that can be used to customize how the server runs on your system.
