I'm planning to start an evaluation of Appeon Web shortly. The plan is to have a test server on a Windows PC, but the production one on Linux. So I think that means we need to go with Apache with a J2EE server.
Am I right in seeing that JBOSS and Wildfly (which seems to be the newest version of JBOSS) are the only free options for the J2EE server? There's enough expense for Appeon that I'd really like to stick with a free J2EE option unless someone can tell me that it is MUCH worse (in terms of throughput, number of users it can handle etc.) than the commercial options.
Or wait ... just did some Googling ... one place said that while JBOSS is open source, you aren't allowed to use it for production without a support contract, and if I'm reading the stuff on https://partnercenter.force.com/s/MSRP-pricing right, that's very expensive. Does that match other folks' knowledge?
Or do I just use the free WildFly from http://wildfly.org?
Any thoughts or related experience? What about JBOSS vs. Wildfly? Thanks.
