I'd be curious to hear some opinions on how hard it is to set up servlet engines on the various application/web servers. (Netscape Ent Server, Oracle, IIS, etc.)

Have you set up any yet?
I once got the thing that came with the servlet toolkit to work. I once read the docs for installing JRun.

JRun 221 on NT is pretty straight forward. Solaris is a OK too. There are a few quirks but the FAQ at www.livesoftware.com can help with that. Also, there is an archive that can be searched.
Overall JRun is pretty good. However, their actual support leaves a lot to be desired. It often takes a week or more to get a reply from their TSupport.

Anyone tried "Jigsaw"? It was mentioned at the Colorado Software Summit.

Mike or others:
Have you got JRUN to work with IIS successfully, or are you running the Web Server that comes from Live Software?
I'v attempted (on a spare time basis, but the need is becoming more critical) to get JRUN Professional working with IIS 4.0.
Their toolkit/FAQ mentions something about connectors or adapters for other web servers (IIS being one of them), but have not sucessfully been able to serve content when I follow those directions. Have been able to the JRUN Pro running on port 9000 (their own webserver).
Anyone having successfully married JRUN Pro and IIS 4.0 - would appreciate any tips or deviations from the instructions that came with the tool.

Just for info:
Was able to compile apache 1.2.6 under RedHat Linux 5.1 with JRun module installed.

Thanks

I've installed JRun 2.2 under NES (both NT and Solaris). Pretty simple -- few glitches with their connector wizards where you have to manually fix the obj.conf, but nothing major (if you are familar w/ obj.conf's that is). Did JRun2.2Pro under Solaris w/ multiple servlet engines (1 per NES instance) -- just followed the instructions from the JRun manual, it worked for me.
I've also installed ServletExec 1.1.1 (1.1.2, can't remember) under NES on both NT and Solaris. With that, you have to manually edit the obj.conf, but the instructions led you through nicely. I remember there being some problems in their admin screens when I tried to have a servlet init arg have a backslash (like for a path under NT) -- it wouldn't maintain the backslash when the servlet ran; I eventually just switched to using forward slashes.
A fellow I was working with got JRun2.1 to run under IIS4.0 -- he said he just followed the instructions. If you want, just email me and I get you in touch with him, but I don't know any of the details.
Anybody fiddled with Websphere servlets?

I have Jrun 2.2.1 on both IIS and on Netscape Fastrack Server running on Netware.
Both seem to work okay, but the Netware integration took some tricks.

A lot of people seem to be using JRun.
What are the advantages to using that
instead of, for example, Apache-JServ?
(Aside from the fact that JServ only works
with Apache, I mean.)
