          Dear balsini ,

          1. You cannot just compare the Jetty Vs Apache Tomcat for Web Containter selection . Because both are for different dimensions of deployment .

            hello,

            In the past i did a peformance test between jetty and tomcat. Same web application tested with jboss-jetty was faster then jboss-tomcat, but that was a year ago

            Greetings Johan

              One positive note is that Jetty is more "space in the path" friendly that Tomcat. I run JBoss in C:\Program Files myself.

                  In order to do this with Tomcat, you need to add yet another layer to your architecture (eg Apache-Tomcat-JBoss)
                  There is some work involved in attaching Apache to Tomcat with mod_jk.

                  Also I found it impossible to find a compiled Apache binary for win32 with BOTH mod_jk and SSL (support for these must be compiled in). This was over a year ago, so this may have changed by now.

                    Hi,
                    I'm not ok with this....Tomcat can serve gifs or HTML pages as well...
                    It won't be as fast & reliable than apache but for dynamic most applications it's a sufficient solution...
                    Getting a working mod_jk is the eternal problem, you're right :)

                      Jetty and Tomcat can BOTH serve static content e.g html, images etc. .. with tomcat 5, if you look around, there have been a number of performance increases, ie, we are now moving to a stack where it is possible in some scenarious/architectures to do away with a native http server (from a speed/throughput point of view).
