For those might be interested on deploying java object (without ejb), now it is easier possible without to integrated apache+tomcat.
I've tried the trial version of sun webserver 6.1. It installed flawlessly without any complain on 9.1-current, I even forced it to use the j2sdk1.4.2 on slack instead of the 1.4.1_02 delivered with it (it prerequired redhat server 2.1).
Sun even claim it to be faster than apache+tomcat, can read from there :
For deploying ejb "Application Server is needed".
Happy javing ..
Gonna try a little deploying later ..
