Subject Re: Difference between Tomee and JBoss
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2012 20:42:09 GMT
The explanation isn't overly complicated :)

First, TomEE is a separate codebase from JBoss. They DO however attempt to
accomplish the same goals, which is provide a JEE compliant container.

Don't confuse Tomcat with TomEE. Tomcat is merely a servlet container (a
very small portion of the JEE spec), whereas TomEE is a full JEE container.

Why would you choose one over the other? That is a very difficult question
to answer.

If are risk adverse, and you want your vendor (RedHat) to support you and
help you solve problems, use JBoss.

If you are concerned about performance and footprint, but can accept that
you'll have to solve problems yourself, go TomEE. (TomEE seems to be _much_
faster than JBoss)

I hope this helps!
