Hi Bill, I found the new release is pretty good Sun Application Server 8.1.
Try downloading the SE version and play with it.
Version 8.1 of the Application Server is the latest J2EE 1.4-compatible release of the Sun Java System Application Server. It consists of three editions: the Platform Edition for free download, a full J2EE 1.4 server with integrated web service security and JavaServer Faces technology; the Standard Edition, featuring remote, secure, multimachine management; and the Enterprise Edition, for the most demanding operational environments, incorporating the Standard Edition's capabilities.
