None that I can think of.

Previous Solutions

We used IBM WebSphere, but the cost drove us to Tomcat.

Initial Setup

It's drop dead easy.

Implementation Team

We did it all in-house.


No investment, and a huge return.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

We bounce the servers every three months, but other than that the costs are trivial.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at other products from IBM, Sun, BEA and a couple others.

Other Advice

Do it. Drop it in and if you have huge traffic requirements, drop it on a couple of machines and run a network balancer.
