Can JBoss even approach this?

Rich's entry on the SPECjAppServer2004 submission using only free software, and the links from it, make a good read. To quote Rich, "So free isn't really good enough anymore - you have to be free, fast and robust - unless you have all the free time, power, air and rack space you need."

Some other bits gleaned from following those links: you can set up Sun Java Application Server to use free databases: mySQL, PostgreSQL, and Derby/ Cloudscape. I've been meaning to play with Derby. . .

Do you REALLY care if JBoss can "come even close to that"? Let us ask "What does this benchmark mean"? It means that Sun is able to tune their AppServer's CMP2.1 engine to generate really good SQL. Do you care if we could generate our CMP2.1 engine that no one uses anymore to generate equally good SQL. Nearly everyone with sense has moved on to Hibernate. Those that haven't wouldn't be on a new enough version of JBoss for any tunings to be available. Earth to Sun, even prior to EJB3, CMP2 is dead. We didn't kill it, it killed itself. So...frankly...who cares?

CMP's death is grossly exaggerated, especially by jbossers. The real battle will be fought with j2ee 5.0 and ebj3, sun vs. jboss (maybe geronimo too) and then it'll be the world vs. spring. But only IBM will cash out.
