Subject Does there need to be a default web container?
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2005 23:30:58 GMT
This is obviously a hot topic and I hope that as a Geronimo PMC and user 
community we are not forced to have to show preference of one over the 
other.  There is obviously some personal preferences on both sides and 
we are a great open source project because we do not have to get behind 
one *or* the other.  We can get behind them both.

May I ask why the installer/wizard cannot have a page called "Choose 
Your Web Container" and have an option for Jetty and Tomcat, but neither 
selected?  Does there need to be a default?  Can we just let the end 
user choose?

IMHO, I don't think we should provide a preference for one over the 
other.  I really like both.  I think we should give the user the choice 
without hinting a preference.

Thoughts and comments?
