Hi all,

I am using Tomcat 5.0 for serving requests by mobile devices. Since there are no static Web/WML pages so I did not feel the need of Apache.

I am expecting around plus ten thousand hits per second. Do you think tomcat will be able to handle this load? If not can you recommend some other servlet container.

864 millions of hits per day - that's an impressive number; more than some very high-profile web sites get in a month. I doubt that Tomcat (or any other server) can single-handedly handle this amount of traffic. I think the question is not so much: can Tomcat handle it, but: how many servers running Tomcat will you need to service this many requests? Depending on how big the average response is you might also run into some network bandwidth issues.
