Response to: Performance NOT EQUALS to Scalable

What is your definition of J2EE, because if your definition of J2EE includes a JSP/POJO configuration then you have a logical three tier architecture which is exactly the same as PHP. How is it then that JSP-J2EE scale and PHP not scale?


Without more concise information I cannot 'rewrite article'. I appreciate the please though.

    Sorry I mean EJB (EJB is the core J2EE): JSP-EJB

    EJB = session bean (then use entity beans, JDO, JDBC, what ever you want to access databases), session beans allow load distribution. Most simple approach : JSP in a machine, EJBs in other.

    PHP has the same scalability problems as JSP. It performs well with a few concurrent users, but with tons ... more machines, distributed computing please => scalability.

    Making PHP scalable ... use PHP-EJB or similar when it is ready.
