Subject RE: How to install Tomcat 5.5.28 32-bit version on Windows 64-bit version?
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2009 16:27:49 GMT
The only reason I can think of for wanting to run 32-bit on 64-bit O/S
is too test against a production setup that is still 32-bit (for memory
limits, etc.)
Personally, I'm glad the 5.5.28 implemented this change, as those were
some significant hoops to jump through to get the 64-bit binaries for
procrun and the native dlls, like I did at 5.5.27.  They weren't all
that easy to locate for a general users.
Personally, I'm all for 64-bit everything these days.

Could you please tell us why?  I can't imagine any reason one would want
a 32-bit JVM these days, except for JNI compatibility, which is not an
issue with Tomcat.  Note that you can have both 32- and 64-bit JVMs
installed at the same time.

Tomcat itself is pure Java, so it's only the service wrapper that has to
be the same mode as the JVM being used.  You can get the 32-bit version
