Hi, there's nothing wrong with Tomcat. It's just that it is not that user friendly when displaying an exception or error in your servlet. It's better to have two runners installed in your system. I use Tomcat and Resin. Between the two, Resin is faster and friendlier in telling where in your code causes the error.

Hi Ted, What do you mean by two runners on the system? Two serving the same pages?
Stanley , I think Ted means two servlet / jsp engines. You install both Tomcat & Resin on your system & see the performance. He is saying runner as there was servletrunner in previous version of java. Am I correct Ted ? Ted , hope I am correctly interpreting you. It depends upong what kinds of Test you use to set the benchmarks & come to conclusion. I think there are papers on web mentioning the various servlet engines & their performances . I hope this helps. Shailesh.
hi, some say that tomcat is not capable of handling 1000s of requests as needen in real life apps. i dont think so. it is still not the fastest but it's getting better day by day and has lots of capable engineer in it's back to work for free and open source...........

Karl , we can not compare servlet & ejb. They both have different applications & capabilites. tomcat is not application server like bea Weblogic , websphere. There will be definitely cap on the no. of threads servlets can have. Shailesh.
Since Tomcat is a servlet/JSP server, I am moving this to the Apache/Tomcat forum. ------------------ Tom Sun Certified Programmer for the Java� 2 Platform Moderator of the forums: J2EE and EJB Other Java APIs
I have a suggestion. Can we come up with some basic jsp files/Servlets to benchmark the various servers?. We don't need a full scale benchmark, just a small set of basic tests. We can start with simple tests and build on it as we go on. I have Tomcat 4.01 running under Windows 2000 with 256 MB RAM. I wouldnt mind running these tests. We could also agree on what tool to use like webbench or the microsoft tool or whatever. I am sure the results will be useful to all of us. Regards Ravi
I have been webmastering two sites for the past 6 months, one with Resin 2.0.1 and another with Tomcat 3.2.3 and I have to say that Resin just plain leaves Tomcat in the dust! Faster, friendlier, easier to config and so on and so on.....I dont know what improvements Tomcat 4.0 has but they have a LONG way to go to catch up with Resin!
