Subject TOMCAT 64bit & 32BIT differences - URGENT
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2011 13:52:30 GMT

Hi All,

apologies if this question has been asked before.

I need to know the main differences between 64 & 32bit tomcat for windows.

Is the tomcat.exe and all associated files in the bin folder and lib folder
trully compiled 64bit
or is the installer solely 64bit for installing onto 64bit OS? and the
tomcat just uses which ever java you have installed to create its jvm?

i have been asked to change a set of servers from 32bit to 64bit for tomcat
and java
if it turns out that the java is the only thing i need ot change it will
save me tons of work
if the tomcat needs to be installed that nots a biggy as i can copy and
paste the tomcat folder into the place of the existing and put back the conf
and webapps folder so in theory this will allow me to work as if nothing

you answers on the 32-64bit is greatly appreciated!!
