Subject RE: HttpClient - Use as a server
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2003 01:51:23 GMT
I guess I should ask on the Tomcat list, but maybe someone knows here...

In the same vein, a while back, we looked into pulling apart Tomcat 3.x to
just get the HTTP server piece out of it (no JSPs, servlets, etc). I did not
look into it but it is my understanding that this was not really possible
due to all sorts of dependencies. 

Does anyone know if this possible under 5.x?

You can try using jetty and integrate into your app. Jetty is rather 
small and easy to use (and open source).
