Here's a better one:

Details about iPlanet 6.5 (I guess they've abandoned the 'SP' notation?)

That is interesting, but only somewhat. I'm more than a little skeptical and will need to evaluate it myself before I go tell my boss I can give him apps 10X faster. My guess is the pre-built compnonents in the iAF are geared towards specific activities (e-commerce for example) that will probably have no impact on the type of apps I'm responsible for writing. Also, they may be assuming that a J2EE developer is not using any type of MVC Type 2 model like Struts to speed their development, which may account for a large part of the 10X speedup by itself. Most smart developers are already using Struts or something similar. Anyway, even if it's only a 2-3X improvement, that's still good. We'll see...

Getting Struts to work on iPlanet 6, pre SP4 was pretty much impossible (a few senior analysts have tried it here at work)... so yes, claiming that 10x improvement could well be based on "Struts now works, so aren't we so much faster now?".

Also, I'm thinking the reduction of code from (was it?) 11,000 lines to 750 is quite laughable. That smacks of a .NET vs J2EE Pet Shop comparison. Apples and Oranges within iPlanet, say it isn't so!

JATO seems to be their answer to things in terms of 'pre-built' application frameworks. I'm vaguely suspicious of anything from iPlanet though, so Struts is highly indicated.
 
I didn't say it. I'm just telling you what this tiny ad said.
