Subject RE: I'm using Tomcat, do I also need Apache
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2001 10:45:15 GMT
We use tomcat as a servlet/jsp container inside of apache.
Apache is alot faster in serving images / static content, than tomcat,
but tomcat is obviously only used for executing java/jsp.

We´ve done some tests... 
this {

  tomcat/standalone 201.47 
  tomcat/apache     296.35 

}shows how many hit´s per second we managed, oh yeah, this is obviously
nothing official, but it´s on one of our websites, using some cache-ing
mechanism and on 500mhz laptop machine...

So it´s about 1/3 better performance if you use apache, should answer
your question, but then again there are more reasons such as extended
security... etc.

hope it helps

Hi all,

	I'm using Tomcat 4.0 for my WebSite. Is there any point in also
using Apache ? A lot of people seem to use both, but why ?
