I've successfully used JBoss on Linux and Windows.

I usually work with Jboss in windows as a development env. But have never worked with windows Jboss � Win in a production server. I know it should work just fine in both and any other but by experience which is the best prod. env.
I used JBoss in win OS for development, and in Linux for prod. But we had to struggle a lot to set up and tune the server in Linux, since we were new to Linux. But after that it was good in Linux. So I would say to use, whichever you are comfortable with.

What kind of tuning did you do?Could you please share some. Thanks.

Could you please tell me the reason ?

I am sorry, just saw your msg you sent long back. It was almost 2 years ago that we worked on Linux with JBoss. First we had to connect the Apache to the JBoss, we used a connector, modjk or something, I dont remember exactly.
Then we had database connections open, so we fixed that, the problem was it didnt happen in windows, but happened in Linux.
Then we had too many files open error. We had all the requests and redirected outputs in a log file, so we had to remove these things, we didnt know any other way.
Then we increased the heap size of the memory using Xms and Xmx.
These are the ones which come to the top of my head now, but if you have done anything else, do let us know, so anyone who is having the same can be benefitted.
My Customer visit was quite successful and they were happy with the tuning of Jboss and their application. Yes I also encountered too many files/sockets opened error and I was able trace it out a bug in the customer code.
