It seems that my benchmarking "initiative" caused some effects, and many vendors/frameworks are doing the test with the same tool.
AIDA/Web vs Seaside:
Seaside on VisualWorks, Squeak, vs Ruby on Rails :
My own tests (which will be replayed):
And the initial, and more exhaustive, Seaside on Gemstone benchmark:
Considering all of us are using the same tool I've choosen (WAPT), we should define a clear and unique test suite, upload it to a public place, and run it against the different implementations. The results published by AIDA and Cincom have a significant difference between them.
Anyway is important that we put "benchmarking" over the table.
See you in Smalltalks 2007.
