Interesting article on the Server Side.
My feeling is that Server A is WebLogic and Server B WebSphere.

**** ON THIS ARTICLE ****
According to Rickard ?berg, "Several independent sources have now confirmed that The Middleware Company was indeed paid by Microsoft to conduct this report."
Go to http://dreambean.com/petstore.html

Yep Server "A" is indeed WebLogic 7.0. If you download the sourcecode, you will see weblogic.xml DD's all over the place.
Server "B" is widely believed to be WebSphere [Hint: IBM's JRE was used for testing server B. Also AppServer B did not support EJB 2.0/local interfaces, which ties in with the fact that WebSphere 4.x does not support EJB 2.0].

Let's put it this way -- we don't see these results when we run the tests. In fact, the tests we've run show quite different results (nearly reversed on all axes).
If you haven't seen it Rickard Oberg's response shows some of the idiocy in this particular comparison. Slashdot also has some interesting responses...
All I can say, is stay tuned...

Off course, as a J2EE defenser, my aim was not to critisize the Java plateform when I posted this news. (you know, I have to keep my job... )
As usual, this kind of comparison is biased in a way or another. As Kyle mentioned, the Richard Oberg's article pinpoints some weaknesses of the test.
I could add some comparison factors are a bit surprising.
The lines of code stuff for instance. In each java program, you can minimize the code. But what is the most important. A short program or a program well documented, easy to understand and so easy to maintain ?
According to me, the important point is that this study was not published by Microsoft, but by TheMiddlewareCompany, a major J2EE actor...
And Microsoft will use that in futur marketing publications.
As Kyle said, we have to stay tuned cause I'm sure another study will be published soon with other results.
Nevertheless, we have to be aware the .Net offer is here, and it can be a serious competitor.
