I was wondering if anyone was running SunOne Web Server for a front end with IBM's WebShere as a backend?
And if so, if it was very difficult to setup?
This is the corporate platform for the company I'm contracting for. But I have no idea as to how difficult it was to setup. We are in the process of migrating multiple platforms and technologies including IIS/ASP, Tomcat/JSP, Oracle, MS Access and a few others that were more or less integrated to this JSP split environment. In addition to the IPlanet (SunOne) webserver, and Websphere application server, we also run DB2 servers for the database backend.
To me it seems like a lot of hassle and money, but its not my money so I'm just going along for the ride. It's a good learning experience anyway. You might wanna look more into the actual migration costs. You could be talking $100,000's or $1,000,000's to migrate anything significant.
Btw, this concept of multiple servers doesn't seem to be too common on these forums from what I've noticed. Many of the hosts here have integrated systems.
