R25 Scheduler Application IIS vs. Apache/Java (windows).

Good Morning,

One of our Application programmer manager, is responsible for a product call R25 Scheduler. The application runs in a W2008R2 OS environment. He was told (training) that it does not run well (?? who knows what that means??) under IIS. So the other choice is Java/Apache and no IIS.

To be honest, this sounds very strange to my systems staff, that it would not run on well?? on a Supported Microsoft Web services, vs a 3rd party Apache?  

Has anyone ever used this product before and with IIS working sucessfully?

    We use it, and went through the same situation with the last upgrade.  I can't remember which component on the webserver it is, but the vendor doesn't supply an IIS capable component.  There is a third party (I guess at that point, it's a fourth party) component which can be loaded in IIS, but the vendor doesn't support it, and apparently it isn't always real stable.  

    I'm surprised you got the option to run Java/Apache on Windows.  We moved that portion of the application to a Linux box running Apache.  As I understand it, there is still another component (Web reporter maybe) that still has to run on Windows, so that one component is still in IIS on a Windows box.

    Sorry I don't have more information.

    Apparently it's a matter of an ISAPI module which would be required in IIS.  The choices would be to write your own ISAPI module, install a module from a third party (Helicon was the name I heard mentioned), or scrap IIS, and run Apache.  Of the three options, only Apache was supported by the R25 vendor.
