While it has been commonplace (and well documented) for IT organizations to migrate Java EE applications initially developed on Apache Tomcat upward to commercial Java application servers, such as Oracle’s WebLogic, in recent years the trend has been reversing. There are a number of compelling reasons for creating new web applications using today’s deployment architectures on Tomcat instead of WebLogic, but perhaps even more interesting is the trend to migrate existing Java EE applications from WebLogic to Tomcat.

Silicon Valley Code Camp 2009 is coming up quickly. It will be held on October 3rd and 4th at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA. I attended last year and found the talks to be very informative and the attendees really engaged. It’s a great format, open to anyone and free to anyone who pre-registers. Last year there was a real mix of topics and this year they are introducing tracks to help guide attendees.

Updated February 17, 2014: MuleSoft Tcat server is fully supported both in Production and Pre-production environments. Production and Pre-production subscriptions, which include unlimited support incidents, start at $595 per CPU core. Production and pre-production support subscriptions are also available for customers running “plain vanilla” Apache Tomcat as well; such customers simply need to drop in our agent in the Apache Tomcat instance in order to qualify that instance for support.

So, how is MuleSoft Tcat Server different from other ‘enterprise Tomcat’ offerings?

Our launch of MuleSoft Tcat Server was no different – people are tweeting and commenting on blogs. In addition to the social media, we also had people contact us with questions and suggestions.

One question we received is how are you different from other “enterprise Tomcat” offerings?
