This may be off-topic, if so I apologize. Okay, here's the question: I want to create and deploy a VERY small non-commercial (in other words, I don't want to spend too much of my own money) web application. It would use JSP and JavaBeans as a front-end, coupled to a tiny database (probably Microsoft SQL with three or four tables). I can write all the JSP and the Beans, and build the database, but I get a little confused when it comes to deploying all this. I was thinking of making the beans into EJB so that I wouldn't have to worry about security, Connection pools, etc. Anybody have any advice on what I need to do? Purchase some kind of Web server for the JSP, and an app server for the EJB? Do I need to buy a Microsoft SQL licence? Would the app server handle the JSP frontend as well? I'm at the level where I see all the trees but the forest is dark and scary.

If you are considering a non commercial deployment of your application, the best choice of the application server in my opinion is the Orion Application Server (www.orionserver.com). It doesn't cost anything for non-commercial deployments being a very solid commercial product (it costs $1500 for commercial deployment). I've been working with it for some time and would call it the most straightforward J2EE application server out there as far as ease of installation, deployment, and development goes. It bolsters a bunch of features not available in app. servers costing several times as much as Orion. It also beats pretty much any other competitor in application server arena in terms of performance being a very lightweight product. It also adds a very inexpensive clustering scheme to an already good mix of features -- you pay the same $1500 for an additional node in the cluster.

Thanks for the help. Someone else suggested Orion so I will listen to you two!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
