Subject RE: Why Use apache
Date Wed, 02 May 2001 16:03:32 GMT
I would suggest that Apache is also more secure - it's been around longer,
and has had more development, thus has had longer to mature.  If you hide
Tomcat behind Apache, then any bugs that may appear in Tomcat's URL parsing
(for example) are less of a worry.
