Application Platform Types

Application Platform Types

Recently I was going through an SOA Implementation Survey when I saw the question as shown in the screen-shot. Well I’ve always been under the impression that Microsoft does have an Application Platform (although I must admit even after Google-ing I’m not sure what it is exactly), even for SOA. Did I miss something or is it occasionally just hard to come up with a good survey? Please leave your thoughts in the comments.

    Guess that would be .NET (languages / virtual machine / libraries) + IIS, BizTalk.

    The options in the screen shot are a bit strange, though. Some are languages, some are hardware architectures, some are operating systems, etc. As a result, they are not mutually exclusive. One could run LAMP on mainframe (using Linux on zSeries), or Java on Unix, or SAP on Unix.

    Also, LAMP is an acronym for Linux, Apache HTTP Server, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python, they left Apache HTTP Server out.
