Hi,
Currently i have installed Tomcat server. Now i want to learn and develop EJB. So i am planning to install Orion server. Will there be a conflict b/W Orion and Tomcat ? If so can i just use Orion server alone to run my servlets and JSP ?
Please help.
regards
sankar

Hi!
If you want to use servlets and jsp's only the Tomcat should be quite sufficient(any web server). But if you plan on using ejb then you need an application server.
i don't think you should have any problems if you install both but use only one. Because if you have to deploy your servlets you have start the specific server on which you have configured all your class files, jsp's, htmls etc in order to see your output
Please correct me if I am wrong

Orion will happily run Servlets, JSPs and/or EJBs. Because Tomcat is not really designed to support plugins, and Orion is not really designed to plug in to things, using Orion on its own is probably a better idea.
Note, however that some servers such as Tomcat and Resin are open source, so you can see how they do things, while Orion is closed - only the class files are available. Also although Orion is free for development use, it is $1000 per server to deploy commercially. Tomcat is completely free under the Apache licence.
