I am sorry, I dont know whether I am posting my question under the correct topic.please bear with me.
For our application during development we are using Tomcat 5.5 server and Netbeans IDE. the database is MySQL. The server might have to handle some 50 requests at the same time. Can we go on with Tomcat server and give our clients with the same? Or should i go for some other server?
Will our application run efficiently under this environment?
A lot of people underestimate Tomcat. On good hardware Tomcat scales very well. JBoss uses Tomcat as it's container, if that says anything. I don't know how many times I've worked on a project that required Websphere or Weblogic and a common phrase is always, "Well crap, it works just fine in Tomcat. Why doesn't it work in [Webshere/Weblogic]?"
