Subject RE: Using Tomcat 5.5 as a standalone web server
Date Wed, 11 Jan 2006 11:04:18 GMT
Thanks George and to Tim for his answer also - George's example seems to
be a reliable indicator of its capability.  I am going to load test the
site on a pure Tomcat install - I will let you all know how it goes ;)

I would love still to hear of any other examples of pure Tomcat
installs. It strikes me that if Tomcat is regarded an enterprise-class
web server, as opposed to a Java content server only, it provides a lot
of great answers to those of us who have to admin integrated
environments. I really hope the development of Tomcat continues to shore
up its Apache-like capabilities.

I'm running around 700,000 pages a month on a pure tomcat installation
with no problems. Since I'm currently running 90+ virtual hosts, I
wanted to avoid having to configure them in both Tomcat and Apache, so I
went pure tomcat.
