That'd definitely be Barista 3.3.6... – Doug Dec 5 '12 at 20:45

Barista is a web server developed internally at, which is now part of The Walt Disney Company (that also includes ESPN). It was developed as an alternative to Tomcat (during Tomcat's early days)

A Barista server might. Running v 3.3.6, if I had to guess.

(I'd never heard of it before either... and not too surprisingly, Google kept wanting to show me all about serving coffee, and how/where to find jobs serving coffee.)

Or maybe it is something like This module has its own server.

I'm honestly not sure which one it is.. can't find any versioning info on the github link. Maybe we could ask the site operator. "By the way, which obscure software suite are you using, barista, or barista?" – HopelessN00b Dec 5 '12 at 20:56
