Yes. <BR><BR>No actually I don't think there has been any conclusive studies<BR>to indicate if either one is faster. all the tests I have seen have been biased reports from someone with a vested interest (MS or SUN). An outside report would be nice. <BR><BR><BR>Plus do you mean Java Web Server on a Sun Sparc or x86 platform? There are too many variables to list but both can power major websites with the proper hardware behind them. That much has been proven.
The point of Shedao's answer was that there *aren't* any such reports.<BR><BR>It's more or less impossible to compare these sort of systems directly. With either of them you can write very good scripts that will run very fast given the correct hardware and configuration, or you can write a lousy dog of a script that won't scale regardless of what hardware you throw at it. The fact that you're even asking the question in these terms seems to me to indicate that you don't really appreciate the number or complexity of the factors involved. <BR><BR>Anyway, straight performance benchmarks are no basis for a platform decision. If I were to produce benchmarks showing ASP being 10x faster than JSP, you'd go for ASP right? But if you're developers have a strong Java background and aren't very good at ASP you will run into more problems as the project progresses - if they're really bad at ASP it'll never work when you could've had a working JSP solution. Given that there just isn't *that* much of a difference, use the one that suits you and your environment best.<BR><BR>Dunc
That was very well put Dunc. Thanks!<BR>It really depends on one's situation. The argument over scalablity will continue for a long time as there aren't any non-biased, tried and true ways to test two different platforms using the same test.<BR><BR><BR>People would kill to see those type of reports. If they were totally non-biased reports, people would flock to them. But the test would have to be on a comparable platform with very good code on both. And cost would also come into play.
