We're currently running oc4j on OAS & are thinking of moving to JBoss instead of WebLogic at the same time we upgrade our db to 11g.
We need clustering and WebLogic only provides that in it's expensive enterprise version, so that rules that out.
(The other main app server providers seem to offer clustering as part of the standard offering.)
The load on the app servers isn't expected to be particularly heavy (maybe 100 'concurrent' users at most) but it does need to be stable & reliable.
Can anyone offer any opinions about using JBoss in this situation?
We're tentatively ruling out Glassfish as it's another Oracle owned product & we're wary about the future of the product.
Should we be looking at anything else?
I'm guessing Tomcat would be an option, but in 'the old days' Tomcat wasn't recommended as a production server. Have things changed over the last 5 (or maybe more like 10) years?
