Hi, Sheriff. I am new to the SCWCD forum. I really like to have this book, but am afraid that I can't ask a good question. My company does the payroll ASP business, the performance is the second important issue after the system availability. As a programmer, I will have to choose between VS.NET and Java when I develop an application.. 1) How will you compare the performance between JSP and ASP? 2) How do you compare the performance of the web service written in Serverlet and .NET Thank you.
