Subject Re: Jetty downgrade
Date Mon, 24 Apr 2006 17:21:53 GMT
I'm on the Jetty side of the fence when it comes to the Tomcat debate  
personally.  Jetty has always been very fast and running "java -jar  
start.jar" is so much more pleasant than I've experienced with  
Tomcat.  If someone wants to push Tomcat in so that it can be run in  
a similarly fast and lightweight way then I'm +1 for sure.  Quite  
likely my experience with Tomcat is outdated and it could be done  
much like Jetty.
