Will only a tomcat suffice???

Hi all,

I am very much new to Apache/Tomcat. Plz excuse me if the question is too trivial.

I am confused whether I need Apache web server or not. My requirement is something like this.

I need to deploy a SOAP/WSDL service on a service. Will be using Apache Axis. I will be installing a third party authentication software. Its installation says configure SSL on Tomcat. I will also be requiring a globus toolkit for grid applications.

Now my question is will I require a Apache Web server or not. Will only Tomcat5 be enuf for me? In case I further need to install a Web server I can install Apache and a connector right?

Plz suggest the optimum solution. Thank you so much in advance.

Regards,
Naveen

I see no reason for you not to just use Tomcat. Putting the Apache web server in the loop will just slow things down and connectors are a pain to configure.
Tomcat 5 provides quite advanced capabilities including easy to configure SSL. I found the Wrox book "Professional Tomcat 5" to be very helpful.
