A new survey by BZ Research says that JBoss is now the top choice for Java application servers.

The fourth annual Java Use and Awareness Study puts JBoss at 33.9 percent of users, a 26 percent growth rate from 2003. IBM WebSphere is at 32.9 percent followed by BEA WebLogic (27.9 percent) and Oracle (21.9 percent).

JBoss reported the survey results on Tuesday.

The open-source company released a new version of its Application Server in 2004.
