Subject RE: Performance : Tomcat vs IIS
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2001 11:56:31 GMT
You can't compare the two. IIS is a web/script server (+MS DCOM, .NET, etc),
not an app server (like Tomcat, Weblogic, Websphere, etc.) You could serve
html pages through it, but if that's all you want - use Apache HTTP server
or iPlanet... Also, you can't run java apps on IIS, so how could you compare
it to Tomcat based on that?

Hope this makes things clearer.
