TC6 or Glassfish2.0 for production?

To be honest we're still using tc4.1 but pushing towards TC6. It does occur to me that it may be an idea to atleast consider a move to Glassfish.

I'm reading the migration info, but anyone have any thoughts?

What advantages would it bring?

It wouldn't be T4.1, big advantage. Are you still running Java 1.3 DOM? ;) Sorry, just feeling ornery.

Actually I was asking about advantages of Glassfish vs. Tomcat 6. If the team is already familiar with configuring a Tomcat installations (yeah, there are differences betwixt 4 and 6, but not major) what would be the advantages of moving to a completely different container?

Good point. Isn't Glassfish a full fledged Application Server? Maybe it just comes down to if you need those built in services or not?

One thing i can see is good web console and CLI for administration purpose.

GB Are you still running Java 1.3 DOM? ;) Sorry, just feeling ornery.

Um Java 1.4, but transitioning to J6u10 (as in we have trial clients using that now)

Currently we have about 100 clients runnning the same app (often different versions, but typically only 2 versions at a time) but each client in its own TC instance.

Having 100 clients on 100 TC instances is a waste when you are limitted by server memory. We need to support Apache workers, hot deploy/undeploy, restarts and few other issues like some specific logging, but everything is working using multiple clients on a single TC instance except the visibility to Apache via AJP workers.

I was considering trying GF as the JEE RI, and there are a few features such as Open MQ that we could realy get some use out of.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
