Here is how I rank them:

resin (by Caucho) (best performance and support, open source) - states that is the one of the fastest on its web site and our load tests confirmed that.
orion (adopted by Oracle, pretty fast and stable, open source)
tomcat (good performance, open source and widely used)
JRUN (not that great but easiest win config)
WebSphere and Weblogic (excellent performance but very expensive .. too much)

A good reference:

Orion is not open source, but it is available for use free of charge in development and non-commmercial environments (and at $1500 per commercial server licence). It's also fast and provides full J2EE compliance.

JBoss and Jonas are both open source and there are plenty of others out there - it often depends on your budget as well as your performance requirements.

If you only want JSP/Servlet handling, rather than a J2EE/EJB app server, you will have more choice.

You can only rank the products if you specify the criteria that are most important. Is it only performance, at any cost, that you want?

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:
