Subject RE: APR/Native: when to use it?
Date Thu, 02 Dec 2010 21:30:23 GMT
Thanks for your quick response, but I still don't know when should I use
APR. That comparison table doesn't help me much (perhaps my ignorance
here).

No.

That's not really an "or" situation.  Depending on your circumstances,
it may or may not provide better performance (also dependent on what you
happen to mean by "performance").  You never need to write code to take
advantage of it.

Look here:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/http.html#Connector%20Com
parison

Pretty much always.
