To build an application server you are missing a very
important piece which is a similar concept to Java's
J2EE spec and API: an Enterprise Java Beans (EJB)

NET framework has all the building blocks for that,
but they didn't build it. Maybe it was too much.

My guess is that Microsoft will come with that in
future .NET releases, in this specific area they don't
even compare, like apples and oranges. This will
require some iterations to get it correctly.
