Subject Re: httpd vs. Tomcat performance
Date Thu, 25 Mar 2010 09:42:06 GMT
Hi ,

We have a online shop developed as a suite of JSR168 portlets. On some
portlets we list products and images (so there are about 25 images per
page + other images).
One image has around 250k.

Performance was greatly improved after we put apache httpd in front
(images served by apache & gzipped response for js, html, css). 
We  did not note  numbers, but the improvement could be seen with naked

Now, reading the article, I think we should have tried APR also :) 
But hei, there are other reasons too for using httpd, such as handful
apache modules (e.g. mod rewrite or gzip compression) 

tomcat 6.0.18,  NOT configured with APR
running on debian linux sun jdk6
