well I think there's a myth here. I don't believe there is such a thing as standard configuration.
the only good configuration is on that has been load tested with your application.
even if I know's software setup, the parts that make the difference is the actual
implementation. if you look at they use tomcat directly, since most of their
traffic is dynamic.
it makes no sense to use apache + tomcat + mod_jk.  heavy sites host images on dedicated servers
to begin with.

IMHO. Everyone contributes, or at least I think they should.

What do you think of finding out what configuration some of these high 
profile sites use so that us other little guys who still have somewhat 
high volume sites but don't have a lot of resources to determine which 
configurations we should use can take advantage of their expertise. If 
they used to pay big bucks for other app servers and are getting tomcat 
for free, I'm sure they should be happy to contribute to the community, 

So how about asking them for their configurations (ie. do they use 
mod_jk, apache, IIS, etc...) and maybe even get the relevant portions of 
their configuration files to be used as examples.

OR maybe there are already a bunch of good examples out there, including 
good known configurations that have been posted on this list, but the 
problem I always have is 'Do they really still work?' or have they had 
problems with the install that they have.

I guess I'm saying that it would be nice if the tomcat site actually had 
an index of different configurations, and even be able to view/download 
the configurations on the apache site. That way I could trust that they 
actually work.

I guess I've asked for a lot, but I would bet that doing what I just 
mentioned would cut the requests to this list down in half. Think about 
that for a while. Wouldn't it be worth maintaining those pages if tomcat 
developers didn't have to baby sit us as much?
