LA JOLLA, CA — March 29, 2005 – Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leader in providing solutions to ensure high availability and reliability for large-scale Java™ 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE™) applications, announced today that appMail has chosen Resin application server to launch their free online e-mail application service.
appMail is a web service that enables users to enhance their current experience with regular e-mail. appMail does not replace a user’s current e-mail, but allows a user to use their e-mail system more effectively. Many attempts have been made to 100% web-enable both business and consumer applications, however, e-mail continues to play a supporting role in even the most well thought out systems. appMail believes the best way to address this escalating data management crisis and user application fatigue is to use e-mail as the application. With appMail, regardless of the application, the size, or sheer number of users, it is possible to automate simple or complex workflows. appMail optimizes communications between different types of e-mail users, including employee-customer and employee-employee contact.
Caucho® Technology produces Resin, a sophisticated application server used by thousands of corporate, education and government clients. Resin’s simplicity of use allows organizations that have large and demanding sites to focus on delivering their message. Customers using Resin include EBay’s half.com, CNet, Evite, the American Red Cross, the Toronto Stock Exchange and Salesforce.com. Resin delivers fast and stable performance under heavy load situations.
Martin Logan, appMail Product Developer said, “When appMail decided to launch a free service, we needed a cost effective application server that had proven reliability, was simple to configure, had built in clustering and was regularly updated.” Logan continued, “Resin was highly recommended to us and has been deployed since the beginning of the year. appMail.com utilizes XML, XSLT, Hibernate, Tiles, MySQL, SOAP and web services on Resin 3.0.9.”
Steve Montal, Director of Sales and Strategic Partnerships at Caucho® Technology said, “Software companies create niches for themselves through the re-thinking of common applications such as e-mail. appMail is one such company — a leader in innovative email strategies.” Montal continued, “Caucho® Technology is pleased to have Resin application server powering the novel blending of email and increased functionality that appMail.com represents.”
With numerous added features, increased speed and load balancing, Caucho”s Resin application server is gaining an industry-wide reputation as a robust solution to the Java application challenges that web developers most often face. Caucho® has also developed the Hessian binary protocol in an effort to produce fast solutions for the rapidly expanding web services arena.

appMail has two basic beliefs, providing a meaningful ROI for our customers while allowing users to communicate with business applications through their favorite tool, e-mail.
The single largest reason technology does not get adopted is due to user acceptance. People for better or worse, are comfortable working the way they currently do. Asking them to change this is hard to do.
That is why appMailï¿½s belief is to engage users into business applications, allowing them to use e-mail as a front-end to their applications. By not changing their behavior patterns, you will see higher usage and hence more productivity.
