Information Technology has developed the following guidelines to help departments plan web and dynamic web (database driven) development projects. After considering these guidelines, departments interested in developing web projects are encouraged to contact IT through the Academic Technology Specialists or the Technology Support Center (TSC) to discuss the project and the College resources available for it.
The W&M Web Environment
The W&M web environment is hosted on multiple load balanced servers to ensure maximum availability.
Server-Side Languages Supported by IT
● Java (Tomcat)*
Web-Enabled Databases Supported by IT
● MySQL (Our MySQL instance only supports the InnoDB engine)
*An engineer may work with you to set up your application. We want to make sure things run smoothly in a sometimes complex environment.
Support for other web services
We’re always working on improving and adding support for more languages and databases, but since there are so many, we are limited with the support we can offer. If there’s something your project will benefit from having that we don’t currently support, please let us know so that we may consider accomodating your request.
