PermaLink JBoss 5 Finally Released12/08/2008 11:37 PM
In case you haven't seen it, it's been released after a long 2 year beta.  It nicely bundles all of JBoss' projects into one app server, though it's odd that it doesn't work that well w/ Java 6 (the recommendation is that you run it with Java 5).  It's an easy choice for EJB 3.0 if you use that instead of Hibernate.
I doubt Lotus Domino developers care, given the low interest in Domino-JBoss SSO.  Lotus Domino customers will typically integrate with Websphere, which is a much heavier, memory intensive server than JBoss, or they'd use XPages for simpler applications.  IBM grabbed Geronimo and effectively killed it (it used a lightweight microkernel architecture like JBoss).  Sun has Glassfish but I don't know of anyone using it.  What are you using for a J2EE server or have you gone the Hibernate/Spring path for your Java web app persistence layer?  I'm a fan of Tapestry 5 since it has been finally released

re: GF using it... See { Link } for informal adoption stories. User base is always hard to count with any reliability, but also see { Link } As an estimate to the user base, we have an optional registration mechanism and we had more than 290K registrations in less than 12 months.

Not sure I agree that IBM killed Geronimo --- I've seen Apache Geronimo release major releases on a regular basis.
