"According to research from app monitoring firm New Relic, open source Java application servers own a serious chunk of overall application server usage.

New Relic surveyed a series of enterprises regarding their Java application servers, with respondents ranging from big businesses to online merchants. Here are the numbers the survey turned up.

"Silicon Angle is running an infographic that includes New Relic's data, and summarizes the results of the survey:

"'Apache Tomcat is used by 54.16 percent of the 1000 enterprise users that participated in the study. It's followed by Jetty at 16 percent, JBoss with its 9 percent and GlassFish. IBM's WebSphere came in second from last, ahead of WebLogic's 0.51 percent cut of the market put by a little more than 1%.'"
