Doculabss Web Services Benchmark Is Out

From Scott Hanselman’s Weblog:

This just in.&nbsp_place_holder; Today the __Doculabs_ “@Bench” Web Services Benchmark came out.&nbsp_place_holder; Here’s a snippet from the Table of Contents to give you an idea of the scenarios they tried:_

Summary Results: Application Server X on Windows 2000 and Oracle9i_
__Summary Results: Application Server Y on Windows 2000 and Oracle9i
__Summary Results: JBoss on Red Hat Linux 8.0 and Oracle9i

__Summary Results: .NET 1.1 on Windows 2000 and Oracle9i
__Summary Results: .NET 1.1 on Windows 2003 and Oracle9i

_Summary Results: .NET 1.1 on Windows 2003 and SQL Server 2000

The results you ask?&nbsp_place_holder; Let’s just summarize by saying:

  • Windows and the .NET Framework is the Best Platform for Web Services

  • JBoss on Linux was the fastest Java system (!)

  • _Web Services on J2EE offers inconsistant performance _
  • Oracle on Windows 2003 Server is a very viable option

  • Windows 2003 Server and Oracle offered a 37% increase in throughput compared to Windows 2000 and Oracle

  • Windows 2003 Server and SQL2k offered roughtly an 38% increase in throughput compared to Windows 2003 and Oracle

Yet another piece of ammo in my .NET vs. J2EE arguments…
