Subject Re: Tomcat vs BEA Weblogic?
Date Mon, 20 Sep 2004 21:08:41 GMT
So the conclusion would be that BEA isn't worth the cost...

And since I am used to using opensource, including Tomcat, then Tomcat seems to be the 
right way to go... (and maybe JBoss if we get that far...)

Thanks for your replies... :)

Jasper) is used not only by Tomcat, but by JBoss, JonAS, IBM's Websphere, and a number of
other commercial products.  So by switching, you not only get a free solution (BEA is $$$$$
as others have noted), but one that's used by a huge customer base and with many support options.

 However, there are a number of support companies which will do Apache, Tomcat, and Jasper.
 Some of them, such as Covalent, have an excellent track record, numerous Fortune 1000 customers,
and 24x7 support.  That should be sufficient to CYA for management, which as someone mentioned
is always a consideration.
