Well, we just upgraded one of our largest client's sites running on Solaris
to Tomcat 3.1, where it was previously on Apache JServ, and it seems to be
coping. Take a look at it on and see if you can break
it. :-) Only if you do, please tell me about it - we are still in shakedown.
We did the upgrade because we're starting to use JSP now for future
development, and it lets us move our application forwards to be a proper
J2EE Enterprise Application.

One of the nice things of course about having the source is that we can put
in our own emergency fixes when we need to - eg: the one running that site
has my one-line fix for request.getScheme() to return https when it should.
I *do* hope that's going to be fixed in the next release version...
