Hello there,

Everybody who is involved in web development knows that web servers like Websphere, Weblogic etc. provide very useful features that enable a developer to make typical web-applications in a simpler way.

My question is:-

Today web Servers in the market have several features embedded within the products.
If suppose somebody wants to work on EJB 2.0 and there is no updated option for using EJB 2.0 features on Application Server he might using.
Is there any option to update that feature directly without buying a new software product in Glassfish Application Server?

Vaibhav,

Before answering your question, a few clarifications: GlassFish, Weblogic and Websphere (among others) are Java EE/J2EE application servers, not web servers. Web servers "out of the box" are only capable of serving static HTML pages.

Also, there is no need to buy a Java EE/J2EE application server, there are several high quality implementations that are available free of charge including GlassFish, JBoss, Geronimo and JOnAS. Optional paid support is available for at least GlassFish and JBoss.

To answer your question, certainly the path of least resistance in order to deploy EJBs is to use a Java EE application server, I believe there are products out there that will let you deploy EJBs to a servlet container such as Tomcat or Jetty, but I am not very familiar with them.
