Hi there,
I've heard it loosely mentioned that Tomcat can't really be used for commercial applications. Is this really true? What are its limitations with respect to other commercial servlet engines?
Cheers
Alan

Some sites are using Tomcat commercially, but there are for-pay servers that are faster and better supported so you get what you pay for.

...heard it loosely mentioned...
Man! you got lucky by saying this, if not
it would disappoint so many peoply...
ever wonder how many downloads there are
for Tomcat ...about 60000+ per month!
sorry I couldn't find the link where they

hi,
i heard that it compares quite good to other engines regarding it's price. and talking about support i quess that you get very good support from all the tomcat users (eg. jguru.com has a goof FAQ and forum on it).
To serve static HTML, you should combine it with apache.

Madhav,
Many people drive Ladas as well. The following discussions shed a little more light on the subject:
