MPL 1.1 (Open Source);

There is a actually a so called DWScriptIDE (not under MPL! - that's a separate
program and has nothing to do with the DWS-components) which should become -
quote from "...the most advanced script IDE and easiest ISAPI
testing and debugging tool..."
But that's all I can say about this since this is not part of the open source
If you want further information please refer to the DWS mailinglist or (for the
internet-part of DWS) hannes@... . This guy is the one behind the
DWScriptIDE and the DWS-ISAPI-Library.

(But who knows, perhaps we will start an open-source counterpart to the
DWScriptIDE ;-)) )

hmm, with plugins you could also support ASP.. :-)
