From what I know, JRun is usually just an expansion upon Allaire Cold Fusion (or a stand alone). They made the Java option as something to expand upon with JRun. Plus, mostly nowadays, they're using Java as an interface to connect to most applications (i.e - Oracle front end)
Well, Allaire and Macromedia have been playing with integration between the two for a while now - JRun had some ColdFusion options in 2.3.3 (the last version I've really used), but I never looked too much into it myself. They're still rather distinct products in similar space - JRun is their J2EE-compliant (JRun 3.1) app server, while ColdFusion 5 still seems to be a competator to ASP (imho). I don't think ColdFusion can run servlets on its own, though - that would compete too much with JRun, methinks. ------------------ Theodore Jonathan Casser Sun Certified Programmer for the Java2 Platform IBM Certified Specialist - WebSphere Application Server, Std.
