Performance and scalability: Sun One Web Server for EJB Support ?

  1. Sun One Web Server for EJB Support ? (2 messages)

    I am running iPlanet 6.0 SP5 on a Sun Cluster of 880's

    Developers are asking me to support Enterprise Java Beans.
    What Web Server should I target to least cost upgrade ?

    Well, Sun offers the Sun One Application Server for free (I believe).

    http://wwws.sun.com/software/products/appsrvr/home_appsrvr.html

    Version 7 is "J2EE 1.3 compatible". I havn't used it much, but from what I have, it's a bit of a pain (I'm a developer).

    Given that you already run the Sun One Web Server you might find this to be ideal. But I think the developers might prefer something more along the lines of Orion (http://www.orionserver.com/) or JBoss (http://www.jboss.org), infact I would prefer pretty much any other app server over Sun One...

    Hi,

    SunOne Appserver 7 is a ggod choice given what you are using now. Its free for development and deployment. Development is not too bad (pretty good actually) if you use SunOne Studio 5 (which you have to pay for about $700 USD i think). It supports the J2EE 1.3 spec. (Very few extentions e.g. no orderby clause for EJB-QL and it supports only readonly BMP Entities and not CMP ones). Otherwise I think its pretty good.

    Cheers
