Subject RE: Tomcat, JVMs and performance help please
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2002 13:02:15 GMT
Why don't you download all the ones that will run on your platform and
compare performance for each one?  That would be more accurate then
reading reports.  For example, I used the Volano Report at
in the past, but now that it doesn't include JDK 1.4 it's not pertinent
to me anymore.  

In addition, I found out the performance of our system was different
from their benchmarks.  The same thing can happen with any benchmark /
JVM / OS combination.  Try all the ones you can with your specific app,
and see what works best ;)
