solution stack

solution stack

In computing, a solution stack is a set of software subsystems or components needed to deliver a fully functional solution, e.g. a product or service.

For example, to develop a web application, the designer needs to use an operating system, web server, database and programming language. Another version of a solution stack is operating system, middleware, database, and applications.[1]

One of the many possible solution stacks available is LAMP:[2]

* Linux (the operating system)
* Apache (the web server)
* MySQL (the database management system)
* Perl, PHP, or Python (scripting languages)
