Hi
Your best bet to get accurate numbers is to test your application in the context of Apache / Tomcat. It's hard to give numbers like you are asking for by just knowing the server. If the code is badly written it could effect the number greatly. Even if it's written 100% correctly, you may have one crazy performance indering algorithm in there that skews the results when testing the hits.
I suggest looking at the 'stress' testing tool JMeter (If you can't afford Rational Robot). Run it on a few diffrent clients and check out the performance. This would be your best guide.
Hope this helps.
P.S. It's also important to know how many of those 1,000 clients are going to be on the site concurrently.

SOURCE CODE should be SURROUNDED by "code" tags.
