Is FreeBSD the right platfrom for JBOSS ?

If you want native threads, start looking into using FBSD 5.0 and the native
port of Java. I run the jdk1.4.1 on both 4-stable and 5-current, but it
is noticably faster on the 5.0 current with the threading model.
However, you really want to wait until there is a 5-stable for a production
system. (Which is "soon"...) Don't try to benchmark on the current 5.0
system since by default it has debugging built into the kernel which
slows it down. (Unless you want to rebuild the system and remove all
BTW, I run a 5-current system at home, no debugging, stable kernel and yes,
the native jdk1.4.1 port does kick some ass. I don't have a windows box to
compare it too, but it works better then RedHat 8. (Which now I only have
on a laptop that my wife uses.) I still want to find a MP AMD system to
test, though... that's the real test.
