Benifit of lenux over unix in J2EE
I am looking for the best combination for the purpose of J2EE implementation . I am aware that both are nicely tuned up with J2EE but which one is the best choice ?
Unix / Linux same thing
It really depends on the J2EE container you want to use, the Linux distrobution, the hardware you want to use, or the flavor of Unix. There really aren't any significant benefits of any one thing over the other. If you want to use a commercial J2EE container and use Linux then Red Hat is almost the required distrobution now days.
Linux Is Not Unix
My understanding (from reading, not experience) is that for versions of Linux without posix threads that J2ee would run fine for low volume applications but just wouldn't scale as well as on many comercial unix systems. It had to do both with the Java model of a thread per connection and the Linux model of a porcess per thread with a maximum number of threads baked into the compile of the kernel.
