I have run into a real strange problem with Tomcat. We are deploying an application into the Tomcat server and this works just fine on all the environments we have used till lately.
On a certain box using pretty much the same setup (hardware and software) as always tomcat serves the first page after a long time for the same application as above. Once this first page is served the application works just fine after that.
Has anybody come accross a situation like this? If so any feedback on what is happening would be great. The WAR file has got the JSPs already precompiled.
The first question that occurs to me is "how many other applications are hosted on the server?" The last "as distributed" Tomcat install I did takes a long time to start because of all the applications it contains.
