Apache Web Server

If you are only serving up simple websites such as those on WordPress or plain html, then it might be well suited for that. Higher traffic websites or heavy load websites might be better suited for Nginx server as it spreads out the traffic among several threads.

WebSphere Message Broker

Routing, protocol transformation, message transformation and service aggregation are very well performed by WebSphere Message Broker (WMB). It is not very suitable for integration with databases.

Cons

  • I would prefer it to be more user friendly
  • Looking for clear user guide documentation to understand all functionality

Alternatives Considered

I've used Microsoft's IIS and IBM's HTTP server. The major and a clear advantage of Apache web server over these products is that it’s free and has no licensing issues. Being in the industry for quite sometime (oldest web server) a lot of products and customizations have been made possible to suit customer needs in addition to having a large and very supportive user community.

Websphere message broker supports a lot more protocols than any other similar tool.
