[Mono-list] .Net App Server
Thu, 18 Jul 2002 13:15:03 -0400
The market for app servers in 2003 is around 2.5 billion dollars
according to IDC so maybe you're right ;-) Of course your competition
includes the likes of MS, IBM, Sun, and Oracle.
Open source app servers haven't fared so well, corporate IT
departments like established companies, consulting and support
services and all that (and that's where these companies make most of
their money, not on the software licensing). Also, all open source
app servers (that I know of) are Java based and never managed to reach
critical mass (mostly, I believe, because of the lack of a first class
open source Java VM).
