Are there some known problems with war files?

We are using tomcat server for ours applications and have some deployed as war files and some not.
Actually everything works fine. But my manager heard on some seminar that it is bad practice to have war and not war applications on same tomcat server.
Are there some real problems with that? Thanks.

Nothing is more dangerous than a manager who "heard something".

Yes, I know . But every time when something happened I was blamed for my innovations, even it was not source of problem

That, I'm afraid I can't help you with. Too bad that pointy-haired-boss insurance is not available.

It's probably hopeless. If you have PHB Syndrome, explanations only make things worse.

But ALL Tomcat applications are WARs. It's just that Tomcat can use a WAR either in the original JAR (all-in-one-file) format, or unzipped (in which case, it's known as an exploded war).


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
