Subject Re: Windows or Linux as Tomcat server?
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2007 12:01:55 GMT
I have no hard stats to back me up, but I doubt you'll see a significant 
difference in performance as long as the hardware spec is the same.  Our 
Tomcat app on Windows 2000 runs for months between restarts, and even 
then the restarts are for OS or application updates, not for Tomcat 
problems.  Once I got the memory leaks out of my app, I've had no issues 
with memory usage.  A client of ours that runs the app on windows 2003  
has had the same experience.
