Java Report bags WebObjects
Timothy Priest writes "A quick heads up on the April Java report (paper version, not sure about the web version). A story entitled "Predicting the weather with a scalable Java Application Server" by Philip J. Gill states:
"As for Apple's WebObjects, Worden (Stephen Worden, CTO of strategic weather services) says the product was "underpowered" in that it wasn't fault-tolerant and scalable enough for a site that is hoped could become a popular consumer destination, and which would, therefore, need to scale to support, potentially, thousands of users."

Is this just product bashing, or is there substance to the ascertation? If there is not, I think The Java Report should get a rap-over-the-knuckles for this one.
Is there someone out there who can debunk this claim? "
