Dear all,
I am new here and got a newbie's question: If I am using Tomcat as the Web Server, will there be a known limitation on performance issues?
I am concerning this, simply because this is a free server and I heard somebody said tomcat just for education purpose, you can't really use it as production server, is it ture?
Any comments will welcome!

You can use it as a production servlet/jsp engine but you should use apache as the production web server.
