Is it possible to have two Tomcat installation in the same pc, since Tomat is installed as a windows system service?
Thanks Menen

Why do you feel you need two instances? A single Tomcat instance can support many web applications.

It's possible. I've currently three different Tomcat versions running on the same machine for testing and debugging.

You can always create a windows service by hand if needed so I don't see a problem.
