Design and Implementation Considerations : Primary performance considerations : Choosing an AppServer operating mode

Choosing an AppServer operating mode

You can configure an AppServer to run in one of four operating modes:
In addition, stateless operating mode supports two connection states, bound and unbound, that are determined by your AppServer application at run time. State-free operating mode also provides support for bound connections, but PSC recommends that you avoid them. For information on how each operating mode affects the operation of an AppServer installation, see AppServer and Client Interaction
