Notes on Cargo

  • Its usage is currently focused on the development environment.
  • Doesn't support distributed installations
  • Supports remote deployments of J2EE archives
  • Currently focused on J2EE containers but the architecture is general and can support any type of containers (database, IDEs, EAIs, etc).

Notes on Smartfrog

  • Has a language to describe configurations
  • Require agents to be installed
  • Focused on container deployment, management and monitoring

Notes on Geronimo

  • Completely wraps containers/components. Need adapter (GBean) to match component lifeycle with Geronimo's lifecycle.
  • Focused on runtime and management of containers/components.
