Java application servers marketshare (December 2011)
Thousands of new environments were created and deployed in Jelastic PaaS during the month of December. Our developers can choose the server they want–selecting between Tomcat 6 or 7, GlassFish and Jetty.
Let’s look at new usage stats and compare them with previous ones.
Tomcat 6 leads the competition, but its margin has decreased significantly. Tomcat 7 overtakes GlassFish. GlassFish has an 18% share: a 6% increase over November. And Jetty’s usage, percentage-wise, has not really changed .
We did change the default server from Tomcat 6 to a randomization, which might be the reason for the change.
When looking at the stats based on region, we can see that the server preferences of European and American developers are pretty much the same this month.
Here are the current, overall figures:
And here is a chart showing overall usage from October through December.
Stay tuned to see the updated numbers next month!
