Best Web App Development Practices...

Marty,
What is your take on eXtreme Programming (XP) in relation to web application development? Is HttpUnit the best unit testing tool for servlets/JSP?
Also, when I was at the JavaOne conference, I met lots of authors that were also presenting on EJB and server-side Java, in general. When I told them that I use Tomcat, they grimaced... They told me that they prefer JRun... I've been using Tomcat for 3 years and like it a lot... What do you prefer to use?
Kindest regards,

So how do you use EJB on Tomcat? I don't know whether there are some kinda plugins to use EJB containers with Tomcat. As for me, I prefer BEA's WebLogic, which contains almost all kinds of J2EE containers...
One advantage is that WebLogic is very popular in the industry, competing with IBM's WebSphere... Actually the point that I chose WebLogic is that I can have one-year developer license...
At the very first time, I used to use Tomcat too... But I feel later that Tomcat is not enough for the enterprise-size systems... So I just had to move to WebLogic...

Ko Ko Naing,
Thanks for the response... My question was for Mr. Marty Hall on what web container is good to use and I never asked about the EJB container. Everyone knows that its the benchmark product for application servers, and I never asked what the best EJB container is...
I asked Marty Hall what he thinks about the XP methodology and what are the best unit testing tools for Servlets / JSP.
Thanks for your response / opinion (I don't why you started a tangent on WebLogic), but I never was intending on receiving it, since my questions were directly for Mr. Hall...
But thank you either way, nonetheless, for volunteering your opinion on the subject (which is "Best Web App Development Practices & What Servlet Container to Use" rather than an irrelevant topic like EJB container to use)...

Unnsse : Ko Ko Naing,

since this is a forum, thanks Ko Ko for participating. I'm participating too (also waiting for Marty's comment).
I believe the reason Ko Ko mention weblogic was because of the following comment you made:
Unnsse : I met lots of authors that were also presenting on EJB and server-side Java, in general. When I told them that I use Tomcat, they grimaced...
Tomcat is not for ejb ( I know you know that), so Ko Ko and I probably misunderstood your post. If I read this sentence I'd think you're talking about using tomcat with ejb
Unnsse : ...which is "Best Web App Development Practices & What Servlet Container to Use" rather than an irrelevant topic like EJB container to use
hmm...

So if you are asking questions that are only directed to Mr. Hall, I think it's a good idea to email him, rather than posting messages on public threads... People participating here are with the goal of sharing knowledge each others...
I think you might need his email address to avoid people in this forum from answering your questions... Here it is...

Relax guys...
I understand that this is a public post, its just that with previous experiences, when someone asks a question, and it gets answered by someone, no one else wants to share their opinions...
I know that by putting the EJB & server-side Java in the same sentence, that it stirred up a little confusion, my apologies to that.
You have to understand that I was participating in this because Marty Hall in a guest to this forum, and kind of wanted his answers rather than someone answering what they thought was best, and then the question is subjected to that one answer. I welcome anyone to give all of their insights / answers to my questions...
All apologies guys! I hope you can understand where I am coming from...
