The teams of Application Platform and MSDN have recently launched a new portal highlighting Windows Server 2003 as a full-featured application server and a central pillar of our overall application platform.

The Windows Server 2003 application platform provides a complete solution for quickly building connected applications. Integrated services, such as the .NET Framework, Microsoft Message Queuing, COM+, and more boost productivity throughout the application life cycle, from design and development through deployment and operations.

Following topics are covered on the application server page:

  • Building Scalable Applications
  • Deploying and Managing Applications
  • Integrating Applications
  • Securing Applications
  • Migrating Applications 
  • Learn More
