Does any body have any opinion about javaEE's key feature of container portability. As so far I haven't seen even a single project where there is an instance of switching a JavaEE app/web server to other servers for any reason. People do tend to stick to the choice of app server thats made at the beginning of the project for the life. Can anybody share their experience if they had to port an existing java app to a different app server. Please also share the portability issues...was it straight forward as java declares?.

Really no one with comments? Atleast to slap me and discipline me to behave?
Or have I really pulled a nerve?

I have many times had to move web apps between different containers (most notably Tomcat and Resin), and have never had to anything but figure out the configuration differences.

Nothing earth-shattering. We developed on Tomcat, and the decision was made to deploy on Resin.
