Resin now Open Source?
I noticed on the release notes for Resin 3.0.9 (released last Saturday) that they now have an open source (GPL) version.
Resin Open Source (GPL) - Contains all functional components of Resin, including EJB, but excludes performance and clustering capabilities.
Excludes performance capabilities? What does that mean - is it slow on purpose?
I was planning on looking at AppFuse on Resin again tonight and hopefully figure out a way to make it easy to setup/test/deploy on Resin instead of Tomcat. Since AppFuse currently works fine on Resin, this shouldn't be too hard. The hard part is going to be finding a non-obtrusive way to setup Resin.
With Tomcat, I can copy a couple JARs to $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib and an appfuse.xml file to $CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost and the app is setup and ready to go. Better yet, I can use Tomcat's Ant tasks to deploy a WAR with an embedded context.xml file and it'll get copied to the appropriate location.
Is there a similar system that Resin allows? I know I can do the copy-JAR thing. However, the last time I checked, you had to manually edit the resin.conf file to import a <web-app> definition.

Thanks for the feedback. You are right, we need something in the
Features section describing the differences.
The professional version adds the following:
- compiled C code and use of JNI for performance benefits in areas like socket connections, file system access, etc.
- cluster and load balancing support
- distribuetd sessions
- robust server monitoring, including automatic detection and restart of locked or stalled servers
