Subject Re: Are many people running Tomcat 4 in standalone mode?
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2001 03:26:55 GMT
I have been running Tomcat 3.2.x standalone on Windows NT for about six
months and have never had a problem.  Our applications are totally
dynamic except for a few image files, so I don't think Apache would

As far as reliability goes, at least on NT, it seems that using both
Apache and Tomcat together is less reliable as there is one more thing
to go wrong.  We have another server running this combination, and it
has had to be restarted at least twice, whereas the standalone just
works. (of course it could have been an NT problem ...)

As far as ease of use, count how many questions on this list are about
configuring Tomcat with Apache :-)

Hope this helps,
