Hi,
according to the project management consulting I am working with this poses a major problem for IBM.Germany.
I will check it myself tomorrow. Frankly, I don't believe it.
I desperatedly need some project description about business-logic-intense Websphere projects, preferably in the insurance sector and if its possible in Germany or Western Europe (other regions of our planet would be helpful too).
I am communicating with people who
1. claim they have heard that Websphere transactions aren't stable under heavy load. Anyone heard about that?
2. claim that Websphere uses "open-source-projects (tomcat) and doesn't garantize support for these parts of the application server".
For me, this is complete nonsens.
Doesn't any application server use tomcat classes under the hood?
Does it affect support???
please help
Axel

Oh my!
:roll: We should explain that to eBay, then shouldn't we, since they just switched over a huge amount of processing to WebSphere... It sounds to me like the people you're communicating with are getting their information from either Microsoft or BEA... In a word, horsehockey. Look at the public ECPerf results on theserverside -- WebSphere is as solid as a rock under heavy load.

Good night. The WebSphere servlet engine is NOT Tomcat! It is not based on Tomcat either! And we support EVERY part of the code in WebSphere, no matter where it's from. That includes (by the way) the Web Services implementation (which is based on Apache SOAP).
If you need more information on large European WebSphere projects, contact me at my office address -- I'll put you in contact with our WebSphere organization in Europe...
