View Full Version : What servlet container are you running Spring on?
Nov 23rd, 2004, 03:33 AM
Im interested to know which servlet containers (if at all) people are running their Spring projects on.
My theory is that spring framework implements the more useful features of full-blown J2EE servers, that more complex projects will no longer need the heavy-weight application servers being more than happy to run on Tomcat.
So what is it? Does tomcat+spring do all you need? or do you still like the big engines of BEA/IBM?

It is a bit limited to have only one choice. I mainly use tomcat but I like it raw and with jonas too.

of course, the best thing is you are not limited allowing the same applications to be run on server and standalone with a common framework.
In fact i know of one project where the same application is deployed centrally on a BEA server and individually on sales laptops on tomcat where Spring determines the online status and either uses remoting or local application depending on the situation all managed by the context configuration.
What im more interested is what are people running in production on?

I use Resin. Could the author of the poll add it to the list of choices please.

cant edit the poll unfortunately :( doesnt look like the permissions are enabled.
it probably would have to be done by a moderator so we can add resin and jonas (any more?)

I added Resin and Orion. Any others?

Using Spring on both resin, tomcat, jboss and weblogic.
Resin for lightweight, high-performance projects, tomcat for the low-cost stuff that doesn't require a heavy-duty transaction manager, weblogic for the heavy-duty stuff and jboss for some projects that still require EJBs (legacy).

Im wondering in which cases a platform choice had been made before selecting Spring as an implementing framework (i.e. as corporate standard) or chosen inconjunction to supply those baselining features should as performance, scalability, transaction handling. mdbs.
I guess my real question is. How does/will lightweight containers affect corporate Java vendor choice?
