Selecting a J2EE App Server


EJB design: Selecting a J2EE App Server

  1. Selecting a J2EE App Server (1 messages)

    Hi all,

    I have been asked to conduct a study of J2EE application servers out in the market currently. I discovered that there are currently 20 to 30 such products in the market.

    It's impossible for me to study all of them. Does anyone has any suggestion on how to go about filtering the servers? Or are there any reports on review of app servers which I can buy or download?

    Thanks in advance!

    Well Alvin,

    Firstly, you should spend some time reading the document called "Selecting a J2EE vendor" in the resources section on It will teach you how to properly evaluate an app. server and make a better decision.

    Then you can start by looking over the member submitted reviews here on We have also linked to other reviews around the Net. Check out's app. server information matrix (there is a link in the reviews page).

    Once you have narrowed down your choices, post some questions in our forums so that people can help you come to a decision.

    If that doesn't work, then consider hiring The Middleware Company to help you make your decision. You can rely on our J2EE expertise, we can evaluate your business requirements and help you choose an application server, and even provide you with consultants to get your project going.
