A few months ago, we published The Great Java Application Server Debate in order to investigate which servers were better for different tasks and use cases. As this was a report and not a feature length book, we limited our bake off to 5 application servers, Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, GlassFish and the WebSphere Liberty Profile. We also mentioned IBM’s WebSphere Application Server and Oracle’s WebLogic Server too. There are other options out there we wanted to talk about and decided to do it as a blog post after the original report. In this post, we pick some Application Servers which we didn’t talk about in the report, but that we think you might be interested in or should take a look at, including Resin, Tcat, Pivotal tc server, Geronimo and although we mention TomEE in the original report, we make light reference to it here as well.

It would be interesting to get some comparisons with projects like Spring Boot and Drop Wizard that forgo the application server altogether.
