What is the level of scalability provided by Tomcat 7 in a production scenario? [Assuming high end hardware is available?]

Hi Arun,

Tomcat 7 is scalable in both the direction (horizontal and vertical). also it is used in production environment across different IT industries.

Based on the hardware you can scale the environment to fulfill the business requirement .

Tomcat 7 is also at the core of Mulesoft's TCAT Server product. TCAT Server is a suite of administration controls, mostly all available in DIY configurations but neatly packaged by Mulesoft (along with significant value add), for clustering and deploying Tomcat 7 in enterprise, production environments.

While Tomcat is widely known as the "reference implementation" of the JSP and Servlet specifications, it has long been used in production, mission critical, environments. IMHO you can scale as noted by Tanuj both ways and very reliably. However, how much you want to build versus buy in this regard may lead you to products like TCAT Server.
