Subject Re: Jetty, Tomcat or JBoss?
Date Sat, 17 Apr 2010 11:17:53 GMT

may be you should be aware that JBoss AS is using Tomcat for web container
(with modified classloader), so if your web application is running inside
JBoss AS then it is in fact running in Tomcat.
I don't think Solr uses JEE technologies provided by JEE Application server
(JMS, Transaction services, pooling services, clustered EJB... etc...). All
it requires is web container AFAIK. This being said it will always take
longer for application server to start and it will require more resources as
opposed to lightweight web container.
