Subject Re: Tomcat 5 vs. Resin?

Yes. Lately, Tomcat is unnecessarily complex. Resin is much simpler,
easy to use, easy to configure, has good performance, smarter code
generation for JSP than Tomcat, chief developer Scott is a very nice
guy with deep knowledge, etc., etc.

Best thing for me is, in Resin, you don't have to recompile the source
when you updated your servlet. Both recompile and reload is done
automatically. When you use jikes, recompile is very fast.

For test development and for learning, you don't have to write any
web.xml nor any conf. Very easy!
