Hello Jose,

That depends upon the application and the number of hits you expect. I can 
run on a K6-2-350MHz with 256 MB ram. That is presuming a low number of 
hits, though. You can set limits on how many threads the Tomcat server 
always maintains and the maximum number it can acheive. This is how you 
throttle it to run on virtually any hardware. You can set these parameters 
in $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml.

This is just a start. I am certainly no authority and you'll probably get 
some better answers from others, better experienced within this discussion
