Abstract—In this paper, we propose a framework to design and implement a novel RESTful Web server architecture. The proposed RESTful Web server architecture is a lightweight server that will be less taxing on system resources and will therefore handle a greater volume of requests. Furthermore, in contrast to the usual servers that supports most websites, the proposed RESTful Web server architecture is used for hosting RESTful-based Web Services. Moreover, the results obtained from our experiments show that the proposed architecture demonstrates high performance while maintaining proper stability. Our Web server is programmed in Java using a simple yet flexible web application framework that fulfills the needs of modern web application development. It also provides developers with a rapid and cost-effective method for implementing, deploying and serving a web API (Application Programming Interface).

Index Terms—Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), REST, RESTful, Web Server, Web Services, Web API.
