Hi Arni,

About three years ago we went through many web servers in the market and found Tomcat simple
to install.
We found it simple because we had a lot of exposure to different web servers that run in a
number if different environments and an extensive background in the various programming and
scripting languages targeting the web development especially in the area of java. 

What we did find was a lack of documentation beyond the "out of the box" install type.The
way we resolved this was to use this great e-mail list and constructed our own internal knowledge
base in addressing the various issues we encounter on a day to day basis.(we now do this as
a standard procedure with all our open source projects, I'm sure there is a similar archive
maintained by the apache/tomcat group ) Till this day I think I've only ever had to post two
e-mails, this is my third - thanks for the opportunity :-)
