Has anybody downloaded the Sun ONE Application Server v7.0? From what I’ve read online, it’s supposed to be completely new. It’s not iPlanet or NetDynamics or a combination of the above.

I did some informal benchmarking of servlet containers a couple of months ago, and Sun ONE did very badly. It was 50% slower than Tomcat and Resin, crashed under load, and was a pain to work with. It also mangled application URLs, so http://myserver/myapp/servlet1 on Resin/Tomcat would become something like http://myserver/NSApp/myapp/servlet1 on Sun ONE. It may have improved since then – cos I don’t think the one I was using was all new (NSApp? Netscape Application server perchance?).
