Re: What the relation between Apache & Tomcat
Monday, April 1, 2002 01:56 PM
it depends on the web application you will be deploying.
there's no hard and fast rule, but...
if you are writing applications that are all based on java jsp and servlets, then using tomcat4 would be all you need.
however, if you are also serving up html files, and need more of what apache offers with its expandable modules, at the same time that you need to support java servlets, you need to configure apache+tomcat4 together for better deployment.
while tomcat4 can also function as a web server, and unless you only have a (few) handful of html files that are being served up, you really want apache for production deployment as it offers more flexibility to grow with your needs.
