having a process listening on a port is not considered to be enterprisy

While agreeing 100% with Leon, I note something else interesting here : 5 years ago, using

Open Source Software like Tomcat for corporate solutions, would itself have been 
considered as dubious, at best.  Now it is not using it, which is considered "not 
enterprisy enough"..

This is at the same time an endorsement of Open Source software, and the expression of a 
doubt that any better-fitting ad-hoc solution, developed by essentially the same class of

people as the ones who write such Open Source software, would be trustable.

Enough material there for a few sociology/philosophy/logic papers..
