[Mono-list] .Net App Server
Thu, 18 Jul 2002 13:18:42 -0400
I'd say .Net has all the functionality of EJB minus
automatic RDBMS object persistance. You can use
attributes to get method level transactions and security.
.Net remoting makes exposing objects remotely a breeze (and
you get to chose between a nice fast binary protocol or SOAP).
And you get it all for free.
EJB's have lots of problems too, many argue they are too complex
and try to solve too many problems with one technology. Its
ridiculous how much money is spent on full blown J2EE app servers
that only run apps using JSP, servlets and JDBC.
