Subject Re: IIS& Tomcat. Why?

Any then for a REAL answer...

If you had a box that had existing IIS applications running and you
wanted to add servlets (and jsp if you really want a new nightmare).
You could tie the two together..

Or if you have a high-access site and you need the performance
for static pages and HTML you may want to tie in with IIS, Tomcat
doesn't claim to compare to IIS or apache as a static web server
for perfomance... And it definately doesn't compare with Apache
in terms of configuration flexibility.

If you are just doing relatively low access stuff that is mostly servlets
and you have no use for asp or other IIS applications then by all
means skip trying to get tomcat to work with IIS..

Simply put... Tomcat contains only a basic web front end for the
servlet container, if you are dont' care about anything but
servlets (and jsp) then you don't need IIS..
