  • the presentation tier should integrate with the logic / data tiers

I believe that the front end, the presentation tier, should be executed on the client and that the back end, the logic / data tier, should be executed on the server.

The beginning of the end of web containers?

October 2, 2013

Is this the beginning of the end of web containers (i.e. servlet containers)?

For years, I preferred running Tomcat. It was easy. To install, extract the files. It was fast. It took seconds to start, and it took seconds to deploy a web application.

Yesterday, I filmed a short video for Red Hat.

I highlighted the core components of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, the start up process, and the deployment process.

I have to say, it’s a bit harder to talk to a camera than it is to talk to an audience so I decided to follow it up by publishing this post.

6 Comments

My instinct was to publish a post comparing Spring Framework to Java EE. However, I realized that I needed to dispel outdated misconceptions about framework first.

I don’t know that I will ever publish a proper comparison of Spring Framework and Java EE, but I hope that if someone else does that they follow these rules.
