That said, I use it as a standalone web and servlet server. The primary 
drawback then becomes:

It does NOT keep logs like a "real" webserver. There is nothing to show 
traffic or which is amenable to analysis.

So, for a small site which doesn't care about logs, it's great and a lot 
easier to install, configure, and maintain than in combination with Apache.
