Application Server Performance
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.
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.
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.
