Java Web Server
===============

A simple multi-threaded HTTP 1.1 Server implemented in Java for educational 
purposes based on W3C specifications (http://www.w3.org/Protocols/).

    https://github.com/dasanjos/java-WebServer

For a more reliable solution, please check Jigsaw, W3C Java HTTP 1.1 server
implementation (http://www.w3.org/Jigsaw/) or other existing open source Java  
web servers (http://java-source.net/open-source/web-servers).

This software is released under FreeBSD license.

- Java SDK v1.6+
- Maven v2.0+
- Git v1.7+

Step 2 - Get the source code
----------------------------
Download the project source code from GitHub repository (https://github.com/dasanjos/java-WebServer) 

    $ git clone git://github.com/dasanjos/java-WebServer

This will create a folder "java-WebServer" containing the project source files. 

Step 3 - Compile it!
