    Application Server Performance


    Hi people...

    I'm looking for some recent benchmarks about J2EE application servers (lastest versions if possible). Any link? Any opinion?

    Thanks in advance...

    This is a decent review of BEA Weblogic 8.1, w/ a ranking at the bottom of other web app servers.

    http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,1218574,00.asp

    My pref leans towards BEA (over Websphere), as it handles Struts more readily, and tends to use more recent versions of Java/JSP/J2EE/etc than Websphere.

    Of course, this is assuming you have the 10K/CPU to shell out... if not, Tomcat 5.0 is prolly the best route to go.


    [edit]
    for the record, ATG Dynamo and Apache Tomcat aren't reviewed in that article...

    Thanks drgroove, but what do you mean with "10K/CPU to shell out"?

    Another thing: this article doesn't show any charts or number to clonclude that WebLogic is the best AppServer. I found a link with that information, but the versions tested are not the lastest and the bechkmark is based only on the Servlet Container.

    10K/CPU == $10,000 per CPU.

    Thats the license cost for BEA's Weblogic. IBM's Websphere has a very similar pricing structure. If your company doesn't have that kind of cash to shell out, use Tomcat, or possibly Sun's iPlanet/SunONE app server, or JBoss, or something else.
