I have been doing some studies on Java Web applications, but only under Windows or Linux. For my job I'd like to start a Java web application on the iSeries and introduce Java at work. But my colleagues say that the performance of Java on the iSeries is very poor. And our consultants say the same, but most of them have heard this from another colleague. You get the idea. I was wondering whether someone here has had a real experience with Java on the iSeries. Is it really that slow ?
I've used WebSphere on the iSeries and it seems acceptable, but granted I had few things to compare it to, not being an iSeries expert. This URL might be helpful. However, it's probably best to go straight to the source, and ask your IBM rep to show some raw performance data of WebSphere on iSeries to you. I just did a quick search of the IBM intranet and it does exist, so once the appropriate NDA's are in plce your software sales rep should be able to put this worry to rest. Kyle
