Eighty-four megabytes isn't really "huge" by today's standards. How many web apps, of approximately what complexity, are running in Tomcat?

I'm going to move this thread to our Tomcat forum for further discussion, as this really isn't a performance question -- plus there's a book promotion going on over there, so you might win a book!
