AIDA/Web app server 5.4 beta released on Squeak

Dear Squeakers,

I just finished porting AIDA/Web application server and web framework to Squeak. Beta is now available on SqueakSource (

You are invited to try Aida, just follow installation instructions, then start by evaluating SwazooServer demoStart, open http://localhost:8888 and login with username admin, password password.

To introduce it a bit: AIDA/Web is a web server and framework for complex web applications with integrated Ajax support, rich collection of web components to build web pages programatically, MVC-like separation of presentation from domain, nice looking and bookmarkable url links, with integrated session and security management and many more.

AIDA/Web is known by its simplicity but still allows building most demanding web applications of many sorts. It has everything you need for a real web app, together with Ajax.

It is also a mature one, running web apps in production since 1996. It is used in many intranet business apps from Gas billing system for all gas in Slovenia to logistics management system called e-logis and recently a CMS like system for Quality and Business process management. See Success stories for more.

I hope therefore that Squeakers will also find Aida useful and a good alternative for building your web applications!

For all who are interested, you can:

Best regards
