synchronization in application servers

Well, using an operating system slows processes, too! You're trading performance for the luxury of not having to code and debug everything from scratch. Using Java REALLY slows processes - the level of personal happiness I got in C++ from a P-150 requires a 600MHz PIII. The point of using an appserver over individual custom apps is to get reliability and load-balancing over the whole machine.
