Subject Re: webapp- who handles static content: Tomcat or Apache (* OFF TOPIC *)
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2002 09:05:31 GMT
Interesting idea to split the static content onto a different server.

Does anyone know how a browser like IE handles this kind of situation, I
know that with HTTP 1.1 the server will leave the connection open for
further requests so that images/styles, etc should be able to go through the
same connection as the original call.

Will IE open a single connection to "" to retrieve all the
images on a page, or will it open a new connection per image.

What happens with an SSL based page, will I get annoying messages because I
am getting insecure content. I assume I will have to put an SSL certificate
on the image server as well.
