J2EE Server = SUV list

Posted by George de la Torre on TSS

=== start quote ===

1) Borland Enterprise Server (BES) = Porsche Cayenne

The Cayenne power comes from a twin-turbocharged V-8 with 450 horsepower, idle to 60 in 5.6 seconds - the fastest "real-world" SUV in the market.

The only difference between BES and Cayenne is that BES has a better cockpit.

2) Weblogic = BMW X5

The X5 has intelligent all-wheel drive system with exotic luxury features.

The BMW X5 and Weblogic are products of the same inspiration for the same market.

3) Websphere = 1995 Ford Expediion with Escort drivetrain

Escort's 4 cyl 1.8 L engine delivers good gas mileage for Expedition, but bad news if you actually have to get somewhere.

Websphere's EJB container may have better mileage.

4) Oracle OC4J 10g = Last place finish Junkyard Wars challenge

A cable TV show that challenges participants to build from junk yard materials. Thus, build a SUV that will carry a 50 pound weight for 50 yards.

Incredible, the exact same requirements for OC4J...

What about JBoss? My guess is it's a Jeep TJ, cause it's utilitarian & small. If it breaks, it's simple enough to fix it yourself!

Dunno how u can compare a huge pile of crap which shouldn't even exist with a Porsche Cayenne. BES sucks such badly.
No one ever managed to get a big application running smoothly on top of "thing".
