did a great job comparing the main Java servers out there, where some
are pure Servlet/JSP containers, others are full Java EE compliant. But
they didn't want to include in the list Oracle WebLogic nor IBM
WebSphere apparently for no logical reason but "they are suited for large enterprise production environments", and because the report is focused on developers.
See RebelLabs report "The Great Java Application Servers Debate"
So, I decided to write this blog post to include detailed information about WebLogic, since WLS is free for developers,
even if you are going to deploy GlassFish/JBoss/Whatever in production.
Which is why I didn't get why RebelLabs didn't want to compare
Remember, I will detail WebLogic from a "developer point
of view", using the same categories RebelLabs used in their report.
Here we go:
