Even though voting startd on Jun 23 and finishes, after a looong voting period, on Nov 15 the voting process is still not intuitive. Trying different browsers on different machines didn't help either. Anyway, I sent an email using their "Contact Us" link and hopefully will hear from them soon :)

In the meanwhile, each of the nominated products above can brag with the logo on their website.

Sun's "dramatically improved" app server

Here are some quotes from a recent report by Forrester Wave on the "Application Server Platforms"

Among major vendors, Sun Microsystems Inc., has dramatically improved its standing in this year's evaluation of applications servers for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) by Forrester Research Inc.

Sun trailed the field in Forrester's 2004 evaluation of application server platforms but emerged as a "strong performer" in this year's evaluation.

Sun's platform grew substantially with its acquisition of SeeBeyond, and the company has spent about a year integrating those products with its Java Enterprise System (ES) modules. The SeeBeyond products, now called the Sun Java Composite Application Platform Suite (CAPS), provide very strong SOA, integration, and business process management (BPM) features relative to the competition.

The analyst firm rate Sun Web server and directory server on a par with what IBM and BEA offer in those categories.

The full report costs $379 but excerpts are available here.

If you want to download any of the above mentioned platforms, they are available at:

GlassFish V2 will be released final in the next few weeks. And the associated product, Sun Java System Application Server 9.1, will be released along with it as well.
