Tomcat Review

Enterprise ready JSP/Servlet Server and ready for High Loads

Valuable Features:

Easy setup Easy configuration Reliability Stability Scalability Performance Well documented Great time to value and pricing.

Room for Improvement:

Deployment automation needs some custom tooling.

Other Advice:

I started using tomcat since version 4.X as development server with Eclipse. Then I used it as a Production server for medium to large Enterprise intranets. And finally I have setup deployments with Clustering for large ECommerce web sites with Apache HTTP Server as Front End. From these experiences I can say that Tomcat is a really performing and PRODUCTION ready server. Well tuned it can take very high loads provided underlying deployed applications are well coded as with any other JSP/Servlet Server.
