Subject RE: what r minimum system requirement for using tomcat ?
Date Tue, 16 Jan 2001 13:07:56 GMT
Kind of depends on the OS your running.  Tomcat will run on
any OS that has a JVM port.  The actual processor/ram specs
are a little more difficult to diagnose; depending on what
OS you're running, what else will be running on the machine,
etc...  I mean you could be running just Tomcat on a linux
box and probably get away with 512MB hdd, i486, and 16MB ram
for example.  While on a W2K system the core filesystem will
take close to a 1GB hdd alone to install on some of the 
versions(Advanced Server for example-which includes IIS) and
of course windoze is more of a memory hog.  This is really
too broad of a question for here.

In general, you COULD run tomcat on a VERY minimal 486 box
(running linux) but your performance will be pretty miserable 
if you're using for a dev box as well.
