Hi everbody,
I'm developing a chat application with several features(Conference. etc). I have already developed it and deployed it on the trial version of JavaWebServer.The clinet application communicates with the Server using servlets. The backend is MS-SQL server. But i fear that the JavaWebServer cannot handle many connections( am i right??). Will the JavaWebServer be useful if i go for the licensed copy of it, or will it crash if the the number of users increase. If not the JavaWebServer, which other server can i go for. Remember that i need a Application Server with the Servlet engine. Is there any free Application Server that i can user, which will cater my needs. If there isnt any Free Application server, which licensed Application Server can i go for, which wont cost much.
What about the Appache Server?
...Kindest Regards

a lot of ppl here use Tomcat to test
Jrun also ok, too
IBM websphere, web logic..
it will be easy for u to use tomcat first since easy to find

There is one java based application server free of cost named "enhydra" but I should inform you that it is not very stable yet. The new version is quite good though. Weblogic Server, Weblogic Enterprise Server, IPlanet server, Netscpae Application server are the reputed ones but cost a lot. Netscape Application Server is outdated but still costs about $36000/- per copy per user. Weblogic server costs near about same. I think you should go for enhydra as per your application requirement and the economics. Enhydra is simpler to use and will be very good for the small applications like yours. One more concern is that you are using MS-SQL backend. So you'll have do some research on the driver that is to be used for the application server and the backend interaction. Sorry I can't help yoo on that part. Iplanet server cost very high and is the latest version of Netscape server. Also iplanet server is very stable and very very user friendly. Weblogic server costs high, ver lesser user frinedly, but very robust and stable.

Trial versions of weblogic are available on the net but are very big in size.
