Fully Virtualized Application

I'd like to know who out there is really using the virtualization platform to virtual j2EE applications – if so what type of application, and what technology is it built on.

I'd also like to get a discussion going here about best practices when it comes to managing applications inside a web project.   Do we have people who would be interested in that? 

If you are here are a couple of things you might like to know:

* In order to give the virtualization server access to resources inside the war (when .getRealPath() is called) you will need to have the V: drive mounted. (windows).  This applies to spring context files for example.

*  ServletContext.getRealPath() returns a path to the staging sandbox – not the sandbox you are working in – watch out for this bug – it will drive you mad unless you catch it early on.  either patch the code or use request.getRealPath() instead.
