<operating system> NeXT's framework that provides an interface between a web server and an application server process.
It enables developers to easily create dynamic web-based applications.
WebObjects acts as an adaptor between the web server and a process which needs to maintain state over multiple HTTP request-response transactions (which are intrinsically stateless).
It exists in two forms - as a CGI program and as an Objective C library.
It also includes a simple scripting language for developing web applications.
Special WebObjects tags can be included in HTML pages and these are processed at the server to produce dynamic but standard HTML to deliver to the client.
