Hello all, I've been doing some research about what web hosting companies use for Java EE app server. I noticed most Java-enabled package consists of JSP/Servlet but not EJB. For the ones that do I see the cheapest plan uses JBoss and the most expensive plan can use Glassfish. And plans in between can use Apache Geronimo.

So what app server is the simplest to use/setup/deploy enterprise apps in your opinion?

I have been using Glassfish that bundles with Netbeans IDE. Have some knowledge with JBoss. Haven't played with Geronimo. For people who have use them how do you feel about the ease of use etc?

All other factors being equal, I'd look into GlassFish first (since it seems to be progressing the fastest these days), and at Geronimo last (I don't really see it gaining a lot of traction).
