    Apache httpd vs. JBoss Web Server

    Hardy Massen Novice

      Hi,

       

      we plan to release a JSR168-application on EPP 5, i.e. based on a JBoss AS 5.x-server.

       

      The question is how to serve static content, via built in JBoss Web Server or via Apache httpd?


      Can anyone help with pros and cons?

       

      I've read, that JBoss Web Server with APR should be as fast as Apache httpd. Is this true?

       

      If we use Apache httpd, should we use the HTTP or AJP-protocol to communicate with the JBoss AS?

       

      Any hints are really appreciated.

       

      Regards,
