Hi Murali,

Are there any real benefits?

Lighter footprint, latest JEE. In general Glassfish only starts up services actually in use.

While I prefer running it on a separate box, either way there's also a benefit to not having to maintain, tune, and synch two separate containers.

On a separate Windows or Linux box, I can also get the latest JDK version without delay. Many of my clients have data on multiple RDBMS systems, so there's no real overall performance benefit to having the server on a particular box. My networking partners can usually set up a box for less than the memory cost alone on an AS/400, and that workload is shifted off the AS/400.

We use Tomcat for windows server for servlet req/res, and WAS implementation on i.

What is the actual reason for us to move to Glassfish if we have tomcat for windows & WAS for i? Are there any real benefits?

Thanks, Murali.

Everybody pretty much covered what I would have chimed in with. Your question might have been better phrased as "What would be the benefits of Glassfish over something like WAS?" What has impressed me in the Windows deployments I have done, is the easy of installation, update, deployment and management. All those items seem pretty straightforward on GF and it all has worked very well (the exception being the i implementation which I am now making progress on).
