what people are saying about hp-as ...

"HPAS 8.0 has only been available for a few days when I write this so I can not say I have extensively tested it but I have done the trail maps and explored the internals (which uses the cool CSF) and I have to say I am pretty amazed at what they have pushed out with this release."

"If you check it out be sure to get the RadPak dev/deploy tool. RadPak enables you to create war/ejb jars/ear files very easily, and deploy them to remote hosts using the built in JMX connector. RadPak gens the web.xml (and/or) ejb-jar.xml, and has a nice interface for customizing all the various properties like method permissions, transaction etc. You can still deploy webapps/wars/ejb jars/ears w/o RadPak by modifiying the j2ee CSF service cfg file, which is very easy."

what makes hp-as different from other application servers?

HP-AS was built, "from the ground up," on a completely standards-based, modular architecture and provides developers with the unprecedented ability to "pick-and-choose" only the specific services they want or need. This allows a software developer to leverage the knowledge and effort of experienced developers and/or avoid recreating components to common software design requirements. HP-AS provides the core set of services that service-based applications require, including naming and directory, management, logging, and security services.

Service centric application servers also remove the current complexities of developing service-based applications and allow developers to easily integrate Java services and APIs into new and existing applications. This gives developers the ability, as new standards emerge, to integrate and leverage new technologies faster and to build application solutions quickly and easily.

HP-AS provides true linear scalability, fault tolerance, and support for both hot deployment and "Hot Versioning" so revisions and additions can be made dynamically without any required downtime.

what is the difference between hp-as and total-e-server?

With its revolutionary service-oriented architecture, HP Application Server (HP-AS) represents a generational leap in the J2EE application server marketplace. Unlike its predecessors in the market, HP-AS' flexible new 3rd-generation architecture is completely component, or service, based. This enables services to plug in, describe and advertise themselves to the other services in the system, as well as recognize, engage, and utilize the other services that are plugged in.

This plug & play flexibility enables developers to extract and use only the services they require, which in turn allows their applications to more accurately and efficiently serve their specific needs. Moreover, this next-generation platform ensures that applications and solutions that are built upon it can evolve along with critical technologies and enhancements to J2EE, providing a needed fixed point of platform stability for customers and serving as their basis for years to come.
