Tomcat of Jbos

Hello Everybody,

We have a web-application which is currently deployed in tomcat-6. There are lots of future enhancements for this application. We have been planning to move over from tomcat to jboss. I know that tomcat is "like" an application server however jboss has better scalability features with its app-engine. Is it better to move over from tomcat to jboss.Anything to be considered about feasibility and performance. Kindly advice.

Can you please specify the scalability features in Jboss that you found useful vis-a-vis Tomcat. Here my assumption is that since you are moving from Tomcat to Jboss you have a pure web application without use is EJB's etc.

Jboss is a full fledged App server unlike tomcat and could cater to all the needs including EJBs, however i did not mean my project would have Ejbs, but new web-based features,thats what i meant scalability wise. I want thoughts whether switching over to jboss now rather than later when it might be more cumbersome.What are the points to be taken into consideration for this decision?

IMHO, in case your application is a pure web app you would not get any additional benefits from JBoss, so my advise is not to move to Jboss.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
