Servlet Container Performance

Web Performance has published a performance comparison of J2EE servers testing both servlet-generated and static content. Happily, this report doesn't include EJBs in the mix, just real web serving.

Included are:

  • Apache Tomcat 4.1.12
  • IronFlare Orion 1.5.2
  • Jetty 4.1.1
  • Caucho Resin 2.1.5
  • Sun ONE 7.0
  • IBM WebSphere 4.0

BEA WebLogic and Pramati Server were excluded because their licenses prohibit the publication of performance benchmarks without permission, and permission was not granted. Allaire JRun was targetted for the report but would not run the tests properly. ServletExec was not tested because it's not a standalone server.

The publishers decline to declare a winner. They leave that to you.
