Subject Re: Tomcat as a standalone webserver. Why not?

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your answer. I see your point about Apache more convenient 
for hackers, than Tomcat.

About outage message. This is of course a problem running Tomcat as 
standalone, but I have the control over WebServer IP through the 
firewall, so i just start some "Show we're down message" servlet on the
mmm... mailserver and if needed rewrite the current webserver IP :)
