Hi!

My company has a web site ,which was integarated Tomcat5.0 with IIS5.0 on Windows2000 server .The website contains html,jsp and some flash files(.swf).

Now I want to install the same website on a new Windows2003 server with Tomcat6.0.

My query are:

1. Why should integrate Tomcat with IIS?

2.Can i run the same website on a new Windows2003 server with Tomcat6.0 only?Then how we can run flash files(.swf)?

3.Is it require again integration between Tomcat and IIS?

Quick response is appreciated.

Thanks
Rams

The way I understand it, the main reason for using a "real" web server is to provider faster static file serving. If you don't have a high-traffic site, that point is kind of lost.
There are some other reasons outlined in the Tomcat Wiki.

I know of no good reason to use IIS at all - unless you are using some non-HTML features.

The extra steps involved in examining requests to see if they should go to Tomcat or not just add delays. Serving plain binary files such as images or .swf does not require any special configuration. The default web.xml defines swf handling already:
