Please don't steal threads. Start a new one next time.

They are not directly comparable (Apache httpd and Tomcat) as Tomcat
does things Apache httpd cannot do, and vice versa.

My current longest running Tomcat instance was started on May 13th of
this year (running Tomcat 4.1.30 and Java 1.4.2_04 on Linux). The only
reason it hasn't run longer than that is because we perform semi-regular
releases of new features.

With a well-written application, Tomcat can run forever.
