Subject Re: Tomcat 5.5: Jre or Jdk?
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2007 21:09:13 GMT
What is the "-server" option and how to you turn it on?  I thought when you install Tomcat
it will ask where the JRE is not the JDK so why do you need to install JDK.

AFAIK, Tomcat 5.5 uses the Eclipse compiler, so it does not require a
JDK to compile JSPs anymore.

However, a JRE comes with only a "client" virtual machine. If you want
to run your Tomcat with a "server" virtual machine, you will need a full
JDK. The "-server" option usually provides better performance and
stability on long running servers, so I would recommend it on a
production environment.
