Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Finally - a Java application server that works!

After learning the basics of web development with CGI in Perl a year or so ago, I haven't found any of the other languages or frameworks particularly hard to get going with, except Java.  For some reason, I always download a Java app server, have a brief attempt at getting it going, and then stop.  I don't know why.  Short attention span?

Anyway, I finally found one that just works: Resin.  It seems pretty quick too; the built-in server handles 500 hits per second on simple servlets and about 250 for JSP and its own XTP.  Interesting.
