JBoss vs Other open source application servers (Early 2005 vs Early 2006)

ClassicContentIn early 2005, we spoke to Anil Saldanha of JBoss and he had some interesting thoughts on the J2EE app server market and the competition amongst open source application servers. In true JBoss fashion, there was also a controversy raised by his claim that “JBoss is light years ahead of other open source application servers

One year on, Geronimo recently had a 1.0 release and IBM now runs Geronimo. So is JBoss still well ahead of other open source servers?

    Eclipse has had the ability to compile/build Java 5 code since version 3.1.

    And… just curious… why is the use of Ant for building projects a strength? Is it your argument that an Ant-based build is better than the incremental compile/build provided by Eclipse?
