We have been running Resin 1.1.2 with jikes for a while
now and are very satisfied. After starting out with Tomcat 3.1
we switched to Resin since it seemed a bit "more mature"
and stable at the time. Performance is also excellent.

Since Tomcat is, or is going to be, the JSP reference
implementation we have still not given up our thoughts
about using Tomcat in the end. But for now, Resin is a
very attractive alternative for us.
