Subject Re: Tomcat 6.0 with Apache 2.2 front-end
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2007 21:50:05 GMT
I was interested in seeing how it compared to the
regular Apache server. I am not sure of the advantages
of combining multiple tiers. The reason to keep them
separate is to be able to scale by adding servers to a
specific tier.

My experience has been keep the tiers separate. I am
not sure how secure Tomcat is compared to Apache so
combining multiple tiers may include additional risks.

If you really want to get better performance eliminate
Apache altogether. At least that is what I have heard
here in this newsgroup.

I am down to 4.2msec round trip for my type of
requests as measured at the client and want better
than that and the conclusion is to eliminate Apache as
soon as I can find a good Blog software install for
Tomcat rather than one that uses Perl.
