Exactly my thought. I don't see any information about the number of
concurrent threads, so unless this is implicit by some means out of my
knowledge, this measures only a single request. Doesn't say much about
how an appserver performs in a live environment. Most comparisons I've
seen (years ago now) showed that which server performed best depends
quite a bit on how much load (concurrent requests) it is under.
Also, if you want to compare maximum performance you'd want to use
Resins JNI features and make use of Resins fast JSTL.
