Poll results on RAP deployment

Poll results on RAP deployment

RAPThanks for participating in our survey “How do you run your RAP application today?”  The poll was online for one and a half months.  During this period we collected around 150 replies.

With positive replies from more than 60% of the respondents, war deployment is the most commonly used deployment scenario. Most are running on Tomcat/Jetty (39%). Every fourth installation of a RAP application is run on plain Equinox with embedded Jetty (26%).  Following quite far behind there are a few installations that are running RAP on a Virgo Web Server/Virgo Kernel and some home-brewed launch scripts.

At EclipseCon 2011, the Sovereign Project will present the latest on our ongoing research on clustering RAP in the talk, “Migrating Java Threads to Improve Availability of Web Applications”.

Currently we are targeting plain Equinox and Virgo Kernel installations. As a result of this poll, we’ll stretch our feelers to war deployment and the Virgo Web Server. It’s great to have your input for the project.
