I'm trying to decide whether I should use Tomcat, Jetty, Resin, etc. What has been everyone's experience in using them in production?
Also, if cost is an issue which is best? If cost is not an issue, which is best?

We're a WebSphere shop. v4 right now, but soon to be v5.
We're pretty happy.

If cost is not an issue, definitley IBM WS 5 stands out of the rest.
If cost is an issue, Oracle 9i AS is a good candidate, its cheaper and solid. Itz anyway based on Orion.
I'm a bit skeptical abt the use of Tomcat for production quality apps. Anyway, it depends..

if cost is an issue and you only need a web container, tomcat or jetty.
I've read in many places that jetty is faster, and it's also a web server. Tomcat is more popular and it's good as well. JBoss was using jetty as default but now they switched over to tomcat (maybe because some of the core developer guys left).
If you've got money to spend. Oracle 9iAS.

The client won't use open source. they will only use applications they can get a support contract with. They are also a big IBM client, which means the decision is completely out of our hands.
Not that we haven't bought it up

Me too. I work for a big IBM shop and they want support if needed. We are migrating to WAS 5.0 and I am even more unhappy with it than I was with 4.

I think you should go for Oracle's 9i Application server. We just went through a tedious round of evaluating almost all the application servers in the market. we were working with Tomcat before this and the issue of no support was becoming quite a pain.
Looking at the three main players in the market- Weblogic, websphere and 9iAS, Oracle's solution was the best for us and the cheapest.
If you are looking at Oracle, I can help you out.. just mail me

Thanks for all the responses!
I think I'm going the open source route.
Just a note for David O'Meara:
JBoss DOES offer support with their product, it just costs money. However, their cost is still cheaper than buying Oracle, BEA or IBM products (although expensive).
http://jboss.org/index.html?module=html&op=userdisplay&id=services/index
They offer development support, email and phone as well. This is unusual in the open source java industry. Very cool, as it seems to make them an option for a lot of you guys out there with "open-source-has-no-support-fearing" bosses.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
