Forrester Weighs In on App Servers

Forrester this week published a breakdown of the application server platform market and judged that Oracle came out on top, thanks largely to its broad array of features and robust strategy. Behind Oracle, both IBM and Microsoft earned praise for their broad and capable offerings.

The report notes that customers are looking to lock in their investments into either Java-based or .NET-based server platforms. Looking forward, Forrester says the next generation of app servers will extend feature sets to encompass SOA, social computing and Web 2.0.
