WAM System Requirements
WAM can work either on a single Windows 2000/XP Professional machine, or on a multiple server configuration. Windows XP Home Edition is not supported because it lacks IIS.
Like any other web database system, WAM has a distributed architecture over 3 systems, which may or not deploy in separate machines, referred below as
WAM must be installed onto a WEB_SERVER with Internet Information Server 5.0 , on Windows 2000 or XP, that is able to connect to a SQL Server 2000 or MSDE (running as the DATA_SERVER).
As the BROWSER_TERMINAL WAM supports Internet Explorer 5 or later over Windows or Macintosh; Netscape support available shortly upon request.
For demo or development purposes a single Windows machine may accumulate the above roles DATA_SERVER, WEB_SERVER, BROWSER_TERMINAL. In production environments both the number of DATA_SERVERs and WEB_SERVERs may scale up, for reliability/application logic reasons, and multi-user performance reasons, respectively.
Preliminary (still little tested) support is included also for IBM/Informix IDS 9 as DATA_SERVER, and for WAP 1.1 compliant mobile phones as BROWSER_TERMINAL
