I am now source J2EE software and I have tried JRun and WebLogic. Which one is better? and is there any other better choice? Why? Please give me some suggestions and reason for that.

For using JRun, I find that it is very easy to config a JDBC Source. For using Weblogic6.1, I find it much more difficult. But, I think that more people using WebLogic than JRun. Why? or am I wrong? How about Web Sphere or JBoss?

I have also use SilverStream before but the outcome is not very good. It always hang up.

Can you give me some pro and cons  and also some official statistics for the purchase of J2EE Server?

Nothing goes beyong Apache.
 Take Tomcat 3.4, or if you can wait - Tomcat 4.0 is going to be much better. Well, you can download that later also.

Also, I have tried Tomcat before. But now, I am sourcing J2EE Application for Government Organization and they always do not like to use Free product because of limited local support in Hong Kong. So, thanks for your comment. But I really need to find some paid product of J2EE Server which is popular and secure.

> i felt configuration of tomcat is a little difficult..

a little?  it's a pain in the ass... but once you get it up and running, it's really good (as far as my experiences go)

if you want to go high-end, you might want to check out:

ATG's Dynamo Application Server - http://www.atg.com

good luck

hi efkamel,

typically, the experts here only post comments as proposing an answer locks out the question for others to view.  In addition, you have repeated pretty much exactly what i have said in previous comments.
