Also known as WebFear by users
. Version 4.0 is better but it still needs work. To be fair, Java Application Servers
as a whole pretty much bite. IMHO
, Websphere is simply not stable enough as it tends to spawn
runaway processes that then must be killed by an admin or it slows the server down to a crawl. This is suboptimal. The administration tools
are improved in 4.0 (in 3.5 it relies too heavily on command line options
and XMLConfig(which gets awfully squirrely past 10,000 lines)), though I haven't done enough serious deployment on it to speak to it's stability/performance.
A far worse evil is doing webfear development using Visual Age for Java.
