Testing and Debugging made fast and easy
“Testing and debugging is faster and easier by at least an order of magnitude, and the amount of PHP template text compared to the equivalent in JSP is reduced by 40% on average.”
Levy Lieberman | VP Technology, Prodege LLC“We have found that the internal reporting tools that ship with version 4, along with its extreme efficiency are key to keeping our hardware consumption as low as it currently is.”
|Best of the breed
John Bateman“I have worked with many different servlet engines (some are app servers too) like Jrun, jServ, Tomcat, Orion, WebLogic etc and in the neighbourhood of servlet/jsp engines your product has sold me as being the best of the breed. I’m also anxiously awaiting the newest version of your Resin Hardcore…
Keep up the good work.”
|Easier to cluster Resin
John Stotler“We’re using Resin with WebLogic because the JSP engine is faster, and the xsl transforms would be far too heavy to load onto a machine that is already bogged down with heavy EJB traffic.
It is also far easier (and cheaper) to cluster Resin to handle all of the servlets, JSPs and XSL transforms onto multiple heavy-weight servers than it is to keep spending money on licensing fees for clustered WebLogic licenses.”
|Above and beyond JBoss
Jamie Novak“It’s things like this, the excellent technical support, and the general feeling of ‘good people’ that keeps us as customers. We have had people in upper management asking why we don’t use JBoss… there’s just no comparison. You’ve gone above and beyond, so thank you.”
|Months without maintenance
Richard Peters“We have used Resin as our JSP application server for years. We are impressed with the speed and stability as well as the keep-alive feature. Our resin server runs for months at a time without maintenance.”
|Cost effective. Feature rich. Scalable.
Paul Novak“The Caucho® Resin application server is at the core of our product’s infrastructure, and due to its stability and reliability we’ve been able to achieve phenomenal uptime and performance for our Enterprise SaaS project portfolio management (PPM) software. While most companies with SaaS products focus primarily on small-to-midsize businesses, PowerSteering is used by global enterprises and government organizations with large, worldwide deployments. We could not serve the need of such demanding, geographically diverse users without the cost effective, feature rich, and scalable solution that Caucho® provides.”
|Reduced memory requirements
Christopher Burkey“With Resin we have vastly reduced memory requirements by setting the startup-mode for each host and using shared libraries. OpenEdit hosting also uses the quick reload ability and the great performance of Resin to keep uptime in the high 99.99 percentile. Resin and OpenEdit are a perfect combination to build fast, full featured and reliable web sites for clients.”
Marcel Oerlemans“I’ve worked with Caucho/Resin for 12 years now, introduced it at 2 companies, one of which the largest newspaper in the Netherlands and it has never disappointed me.”
|Easy to configure and works very nicely
Simon Orchanian“Resin is by far the best JSP engine out. I’ve been using it with Apache on Solaris and also with IIS 5.0 on Windows2000. It it easy to configure and works very nicely.”
|Recommend Resin over Tomcat
Serge Knystautas“I’ve been using Tomcat since it was first donated, submitted patches, and all that. I’m actually a lead contributor to the JAMES software that was just ported over to the Jakarta site. Anyway, nothing against those guys… I think the Tomcat group is doing an ok job, but I wholeheartedly recommend Resin over Tomcat. We’ve been using Tomcat across almost all of our projects, and we’ve been burnt a lot. Basically it’s a reference implementation (not a production grade or commercial feature-filled server), which is fine because that’s their objective… arbitrate over the specs and do an ok job implemented it. Anyway, we’re in the middle of porting everything we can over to Resin.
I’m sure I’ll get flamed for this, but I’m getting pretty sick of restarting this Tomcat server every few days that is handling about a million hits a month… it’s all db driven and has some intense reports, but still, if I wanted this kind of total cost of ownership, I would have used Microsoft. ”
|5 times faster than standard PHP
Paul T. Fisher“Quercus seems to be around 5 times faster than standard PHP. Resin caching has also made a significant improvement to performance, since we can add application-level caching in a more fine-tuned manner. Quercus also allows us to use JDBC datasources, and DB pooling, which adds efficiency to the data layer. We’ve also been able to easily utilize Java libraries and existing code right from PHP, which has both development and performance implications (both positive).”
|Significant performance increase
Maciej Bogucki“Once we made the move to Resin the availability of our services significantly increased… using Resin helps us scale and grow our services much more easily.”
|Consistent speed, resilience, and flexibility
Carl Whalley“We have been using Resin for over eight years in a notoriously demanding environment. Resin has consistently provided us with the speed, resilience and flexibility we need to meet these goals, not to mention the first-class support provided by Caucho.”
|Cheaper, faster and with much less overhead
Guy McArthur“I have to say that your dedication to helping Resin developers and continued improvement of an already-great tool are incredible and set an extremely high standard for the rest of the industry.”
Given that everything you can do with weblogic you can do with Resin (or Resin + third party projects such as jBoss) for far cheaper, faster and with much less overhead, I’m convinced there’s only two reasons anyone would use weblogic:”
|Tens of millions of requests per day
Rob Lockstone“Our servers handle tens of millions of requests per day. Our customers require up to the second market data. We need a robust application server that can handle that load without getting in the way. Resin gave us that before anyone else got close, and continues to lead the way with superior performance, frequent updates, and superb support.”
|Years of reliability
Brian Youngblood“I’ve been using Caucho’s Resin application server for over ten years, and it has been the foundation for our backend Java applications ever since.”
|Great product, great staff
Gary Lunsford“Your engineers have helped us solve several onerous problems by providing timely review of sent logs and highly effective troubleshooting tips. We have some great software developers here but occasionally even they get stuck and need the deep technical understanding the Caucho® staff provides. Resin has proven itself to be a stable yet versatile product and it’s really great to see such a talented staff behind it.”
|Served with the speed of static pages – or even faster than static pages
Arne Solheim“Honestly you are really better off sticking with Resin. Indeed my experience with Tomcat was extremely frustrating. I would say the best thing about is the documentation available on caucho’s web site. I found extremely well documented…
The real advantage of Resin for us is its support for caching; Our pages are built up with “template JSPs” that includes 1..n JSPs for each “sub-part” of the page, where these sub-parts are cached individually (most of them are obtaining their data through beans which in turn uses JDBC to talk to our databases). Resin then takes care of all the caching issues for us, and we can enjoy a unix-server serving 1.6-2.0 mill. pageviews pr/month with almost no load (< 0.50), and database access is only needed when the given JSP needs to be refreshed because its cache TTL has expired (when cached the pages are served with the speed of static pages – or even faster than static pages served from disk when the cached JSPs are fetched from memory (!))”.
|Resin is much faster, easier to install/configure, and has much better support.
Simon Orchanian“in that case use Resin! … with Resin you just copy the updated source files and refresh the page! it really is very fast and easy to use…
I started using Tomcat here at work to prototype a new web site we’re developing, but found the documentation to be very lacking. We then looked at Resin and found that along with great documentation it has excellent support… and the other people on this mailing list. I was on the Tomcat mailing list for a while and it seemed that 99% of the traffic was people asking things that should have been in the documentation if not at least in a FAQ.
I think Resin is much faster, easier to install/configure, and has much better support.”
|Centerpiece for highly scalable architecture
Jamie Hall“Resin is the center piece of our highly scalable, open source Web and mobile site architectures. It’s ability to scale has allowed us to make the site performance blazingly fast, while keeping our server footprint small. In my 10 years of architecturing applications in Java, I don’t think any other enterprise class Java application server has come as highly recommended.”
|Drastic reduction in development time
Riccardo Cohen“We decided to build a reliable, dynamic web server and tried Resin because we heard about its performance. I completed this project in 20 days instead of what would have taken 2 or 3 months with other tools. Not only was Resin quick to implement, it’s fast, scalable, universal and easy to maintain.”
|Best IT technology
Dr. Patrick Brigger “We need the best in IT Technology. Over the course of the last five years, we have evaluated different application servers. Our evaluation process came to an end when we found Resin: The simplicity of the installation, the speed of the engine, and the competitive price convinced us entirely”
|Many rich features
Steffen Busch“We took advantage of Resin’s many features including simple management tools, a huge number of small but rich features like GZip-Filter, URL aliasing and rewriting, multithreaded JSP Precompilation and many more. Beside its advantages during development, features like the web-app versioning ensure a smooth deployment.”
|Incredibly skilled and experienced team
Massimo Mistretta“Caucho® is one of our key partners and we appreciate the opportunity to share our challenges with their incredibly skilled and experienced team.”
|Response time is so fast
Matt Hixson“Hey guys, I just wanted to thank you for the great project! I’m using Resin1.1b4 for an intranet site and the response time is so fast that users think we’re using client-side scripting!
I have been using the Struts framework almost since it came into being. At first, Struts and Resin had some disagreements. Those were worked out, with both parties interested in cooperating with each other. That was many months ago. Today, the combination of Struts + Resin provides a very powerful environment in which to develop web applications.
In contrast to how quickly problems are fixed in Resin and in Struts, I have read so many messages about problems with WebLogic that I am amazed that people would even pay for it. That it commands a price of around $15K per processor is completely mind-boggling…”
|Work in a total MS environment
Martin Cooper“I am enjoying working with Servlets/JSP after ASP. They are actually very similar (I was quite surprised) and JDBC is very similar to ADO in a lot of ways. I am enjoying learning new things.
The great thing about RESIN for me is that I work in a total MS environment. Resin allows me to use java in that environment and that is great! Your product is excellent, and I will be doing everything I can to encourage my company to buy it.”
