Incredible Hosting System is a tool that allows you to administrate a hosting system using a Web browser.
The aim is to support administrators and users. Incredible Hosting System currently includes support for Virtual Qmail.
IHS will be a platform for implementing and integrating mail or hosting systems in different environments - small or medium companies looking for tools for managing system accounts, hosting companies offering services based on this system.
System is complex, requires integration of many other applications, for example: WWW server, mail transfer agent, FTP server, database. Also it should be possible to integrate system with other applications that are specific to company's environment.
Aside integration of existing application platform must be built that will allow to manage everything is a manner undependent from tools that are used in background. It should be a centralized and consistent environment. Also API for developers shoule be generic that changes in tools doesn't require changes in code.
Incredible Hosting System will be based on following tools, technologies:
· Apache as WWW server;
· PostgreSQL as default database;
· ProFTPD as default database;
· qmail or Virtual Qmail as a MTA;
· CORBA as a service communication protocol;
· J2EE as an runtime environment;
