Application Server Instead Of Web Server

I'm starting to see a small but growing group of sites forgoing web servers and going straight to the Application Server in the Java world. This has some obvious advantages:

  • Less infrastructure
  • Java doesn't have buffer overflows and is a bit more secure
  • You can do much more interesting caching by having the web serving and app serving in the same layer

I was excited to see this blog today and just wanted to point people to it and see what thoughts are out there both pro and con on this trend.
