We also worked with the Cesanta team to do some custom features for us and that saved a lot of time.

Q: What changed for you after you integrated the Mongoose Web Server Library?

A: We are not aware of any other product that could provide the performance and function in our resource constrained embedded environment. There have been no issues to date with Mongoose.
