Well I know a lot of people dont post until they have something to complain about but I thought Id throw a few words (very well deserved) to a great product & a great company. Ive been using Resin for 5 versions now & folks I just have to say this thing is awesome! Hats off to caucho for a much needed & very well done piece of software. The reason Im tooting their horn today is a project I just finished. I inherited a mess of a site where nothing had been packaged & the code was, well lets say.....below par? I redid the site, packaged the code & was in the process of uploading when I realized the hosting company had screwed up the permissions on the start/stop files for Resin. Without being able to restart the servlet engine I thought I was done, not being able to set up the servlet mapping in the .conf file & restart. Since things couldnt get much worse I decided to try to change the config file "on the fly" & wouldnt you know the damn thing worked! You could have knocked me over with a feather. After all the problems Ive had in the past with setting up Tomcat, restarting it a million times to get changes to take I have to say this Resin 2.05 is a breath of fresh air! Just my opinion folks but if you get a chance to try this beauty out dont pass it up......WOW. I also have to say that running the exact same site on the same servers, one with Tomcat, one with Resin, the speed difference is visible to the naked eye (or should I say browser)..Great Job Caucho!

And responses like the one above are probably why people dont bother with posting something other than problems. Ad my butt! And the coke & pepsi thing is so far from the truth its not funny. Jakarta/Tomcat still hasnt figured out how to build a fully functional, programmer friendly engine.........Resin has

hey DC , didnt mean to offend you, if u did i apologize, all in a good spirit.
and, in my opinion your post sounds a lot like a promotion for Resin.
if it wasnt, then i value your opinon.

I'll 2nd DC's opinion. Unfortunately, I've gone from good to bad. I was developing with Resin, then was forced to try out Tomcat and then move to iPlanet App Server, each one more difficult to use than the last. I went back to Resin to update a prototype/test webapp the other day and my productivity improved 10-fold because I didn't have to keep compiling, deploying, restarting, etc. It does it all for you!
Resin is AWESOME. It's not enterprise-level (clustering, super-duper load balancing, EJBs, etc), but as a servlet container nothing beats it. And they rev often to fix reported bugs, listen to developers who submit requests, and give all-around great customer service.
I wish I could go back to Resin. <*SIGH*>
