Subject RE: I'm using Tomcat, do I also need Apache
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2001 11:03:46 GMT
Hi Dave,

It's generally reckoned to be most efficient to use Apache to serve your
static content, and Tomcat to run the servlets / JSPs.  Horses for courses.
Front-ending with Apache also allows you to scale up by running multiple
Tomcat iterations for different services.
