It depends on how you configure/use JBoss.
Also, are you using CMP.
What are you doing?
What tests are you using with Loadrunner? (Did you create your own tests?)
thanks for your reply.
no - we aren't using CMP/EJBs.
forgot to say in the leading post: i'm a sysadmin - i'm *not* a java/webapp developer.
what we are doing:
loadrunner-scripts are done by our developers. better: the script is a recording of a simple end-user action our employees would to.
-searching DB2 tables located at our mainframe (DB2)
the test-script doesn't change anything. the recording is a simple reading task.
1) searching a customer via name, customerid or anything else (CICS-transaction)
2) viewing the customers data (CICS-transaction/DB2)
3) do another search
4) view data...
5) and so on.
the application is *far* more complex, but the test itself is quiet as simple as written above. point is: the server hasn't got much to do. test runs in T-environment. DB2 responses and CICS-transactions running at normal speed - the server hasn't to wait long for other systems to deliver it's data.
DB2 stuff is done via DCS-connection (DB2 connect on webserver) to our mainframe.
I've tried to produce a 1166 pages PDF with iText 1.4 and while WAS 22.214.171.124 take 90 sec, JBOSS 4.1 take only 25 secs.
