What is the best application server for Java.
Since I started work on with Java Application Servers, I'm really worried about what is the best one for developments. I think now's the time to discuss about that here in Java Forums.
I've started a poll here, and what I'm expecting from your guys/gals is vote for the one you most refer with a commenting that why you use it or why others are not use.
I really appreciate your replays here. :)

JBoss is my favorite. Its light weight and has easy learning curve, perfect for small applications and one man projects.dont worry newbie, we got you covered.

For a production application environment I would go with Websphere. It's fairly easy to install and configure. It has a fairly simple GUI for configuration and is easy to deploy to.

When we select an application, few things we have to consider about. First thing is configuration. It should be much simpler. No matter weather it's done through a GUI or not. But if there is a GUI, it's much user friendly. Second thing is deploying. May be this should be the first point we have to think. Any comments?

We are using weblogic here, most reliable.
though apache is good as it is having a plus of being free i guess it is open source too.i am the future

This is great to see all the possible server choices. Personally, I'm a fan of Apache and have been for roughly four years now. I like Apache because it's free and it gives me fine grained control. There's also great documentation available along with community support. I'm not interested in GUI's as far as servers go... but maybe if I was deploying professional grade software it might be good to have that visual acuity.
It's great to see everyone's viewpoint on this as I'm sort of in the LAMP bubble and I like it there. Especially with Java, it's great to see opinions on this topic. I always believed in Java Web Start or simply downloading an application for use, but with these servers maybe there's something better when we talk Java.

Thanks for the comment Captain. I agreed with you. I'm using Apache server for three years now. It's cool actually. As you said it's documentation well explained about all. But I'm worried about the GUI. Most of the time I'm stuck because of the GUI with massive industry applications. That's the major reason for me to start this thread, find the best Application Server in both functionality and the GUI.
Captain, I'm added the LAMP in the poll too. :) Thanks for the infor about LAMP, I've miss it in my poll.

I am still a beginner and I did some testing with JSP in Netbeans which uses apache tomcat (at least by default).
What I wonder: It is not much work to build your own http(s) server having java program responding directly to http(s) requests. So what are the real benefits having an application server?
If the most important goals and benefits of an application server are clear in general and also for the current need then comparing the features probably helps choosing also the appropriate best solution for the particular requirements.Greetings, Martin Wildam.

first solution is server packed in 1.5 docs, we can help you find it if needed. Second solution is something I read today in Java Network Programming - O'Reilly, also a packaged server.
Additionally there is some rather simple code that will sit on a port and pass to your code when a request comes in,... not overly difficult nor complex in an advanced sense if you can write code freely and fluently. Writing a no-op server that is a fundamentally correct server from a definition, the range is dramatic. It is appealing when you can write your own code, Servlets do essentially that.
The server in 1.5 samples does https out of the box.Introduction to Programming Using Java.
