Subject Re: Tomcat vs. Resin

My remark is perhaps stupid (if so.. forget it) but what has been 
discovered is perhaps the need for a plug-in replacement for the Tomcat 
http server.

There are a (OK a few ) people who for various reasons doesn't need a full 
blown Apache but who would need a little but good Java Web server.

There are several ones around like LWS from GefionSoftware or Jetty, but 
none of them is a real plug-in replacement for Tomcat HTTP server.

By plug-in I mean able to be compiled as a jar file that could be use in 
place of webserver.jar in a standard Tomcat install and working exactly as 
this webserver.jar*
