JBoss Application Server.
Usually referred as simply JBoss because in the past the application server was the only product of the JBoss group, now includes lot of projects.

Tomcat is a web server and servlet container, while JBoss is a JEE server, so they can't be compared directly. But JBoss actually uses Tomcat as its servlet container, making this even less of a competition...

if I understood the tomcat server can not support the EJPs, but is it the same about the JPA technology?
in another term, an application containing Spring, JPA and Hibernate would it be deployed by the Tomcat server?
thank you for your reply.

Yes with some limitations. It can use JPA in application-managed SE (stand alone) mode.
There are some info on the Eclipse wiki:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/EclipseLink/Examples/JPA/Tomcat_Web_Tutorial
IMHO however I'd stick to Tomcat if you have an web-centric application. If you plan to use additional services I'd rather consider JBoss AS.

Hi. Well technically I have passed SCEA exam (Sun Certified Enterprise Architect) a few years ago but to be honest what (I think IMHO) can increase your "rating" is getting to work in critical projects with smart guys. Having an architect certification can help you if you are a consultant and you are frequentely changing your Employer.
Very short, but hope it helps

ok, it is clear that this is the best way, but there is other way to achieve this level, such as gather informations on the SI and the new technology.
In your opinion what are the techniques and solutions that should an architect put in the head? and resources that can help improve the level?

It needs at first techical skill: it makes sense to understand beyond the basics behind Java, JVM, and J2EE. I don't believe you can architect the best solution without years of experience in the trenches of programing.
Second you need a special mindset : this means ability to translate your architecture in comprehnsive diagrams, you need to be inquisitive (it's worth trying more then one solution), honest (you need to provide what's best for the client and not only what's the buzz of the moment) and able to convince your client/team workers of your vision.
Hope you find interesting points to begin your architect career

you said (it's worth trying more then one solution), so what are the criteria influencing the choice of technique building architecture: is it the budget, time, the project team, the pilot site, the customer, gols to attein ...?
another question: When you are obliged to choose between a set of predefined tools, how you proceed in this case?

Because this is a public forum, and questions you ask (and get answered) may be of benefit to others looking for the same information. However, the topic title for this thread has nothing to do with your current line of discussion. You can start a new thread with a more appropriate title, which will make the information easier for others to find.

Sorry for the delay in replying. Of course you're welcome if we want to further discuss about it. A new thread could be maybe better so other people might join the discussion.......
Will wait for the next thread

thank you for your favorable replying,
so I invite everyone to discuss with Mr. Francesco on software architecture. But the appointment will be on the "Architect Certification (SCEA)" forum.
if the choice of fourm is suitable I would create a new thread on Monday at 9:00 GMT.
