scalability of JRun versus Orion versus Tomcat

I can run any of these servlet engines on my own box, but which are most scalable? Has anyone tried using Orion in a production environment? JRun... I've heard it's ok for some things but stinks for others. I suppose I should also ask about WebSphere and WebLogic. I've actually used WebLogic and it seems to work great.
What are your thoughts?

Here is what Orion claims:

However, I'm not sure that the question really should be what is the most scalable. I think the more important question is which tool is scalable enough for what you need. Are you talking 100's, 1,000's 10,000's or more simultaneous connections?

Thanks for the link. Some interesting numbers there for sure. I'm trying to make this more theoretical than applied. For my personal use, anything will do fine. I'm just trying to get a feel if anyone in the JavaRanch audience has used Orion in a business application, or is it just a toy server that you use to run your servlet and JSP pages while you're grinding through tutorials.
