Difference between client and server VM
posted 12 years ago
Assuming here that you are referring to HotSpot, then yes, and yes. What you are actually doing is switching to a different VM, the default is the client VM, -server will mean JBoss uses the Server VM which has been designed for long running server apps. Hava a look at http://java.sun.com/products/hotspot/ if you want to know more.
