Subject RE: Windows or Linux as Tomcat server?
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2007 12:15:54 GMT
Something to think about: licensing.  If you're running Windows 2003 or
above, and you have *any* kind of authentication on your webapp, you
need CALs (or, in this case, an Internet connection license) on the
Windows server.  The Web edition has different restrictions, but read
the license agreement *very* carefully to check what you can and cannot
do with it - you may find it unsuitable for your purpose.

For those who still think you can run Tomcat on a Windows 2003 server
without paying the Microsoft tax... read the license agreement
carefully.  Some key terms changed between Windows 2000 (where you only
needed CALs if the Windows infrastructure was providing authentication
via Active Directory) and 2003.
