Hi,
I am currently tasked with looking for jsp engines for IIS 4. I read that Tomcat can actually run on IIS 4. Has anyone tried it for real deployment?
Would appreciate any experience on this. Unfortunately I only have a very short time (urrrggg!!!) to do this. If Tomcat and IIS 4 is not stable at this time, please let me know so I can move on to another choice.
Thanks.

why do not try Jrun 2.3.3? It works perfectly with combination IIs4. Below is my web server configuration:
database: my sql,oracle ,Ms sql
web server II4
servlet Engine Jrun 2.3.3

One word: Cost.
Yes, I know that JRun does not cost too much and integrates well with IIS 4. I personally like JRun but I am not the one with the check book. I am told to compare a list of servlet/jsp engines and "bring down the cost" at all cost (no pun intended) as we have "limited budget" so every cent counts (sounds familiar?).
So, that is why I am not asking for any alternatives at this moment. I am currently evaluating other servlet/jsp engines and was hoping if anyone could tell me about their good and bad experiences with * Tomcat/IIS 4 *. Other than cost, stability and reasonable performance are top priority. 200-300 concurrent hits are expected per server.
Thanks.

Tomcat is admittedly the reference Servlet/JSP platform, but I also like Resin from www.caucho.com. It has more features, and they claim it is much faster than Tomcat. It's shareware, in the sense that you can use it for free, but they would like you to pay them $500 for priority support if you use it in a production system.
I've used it with lots of servers on various systems (but not IIS4, unfortunately, although they claim it works with IIS). Definately worth putting on your shortlist.

Hi,
I found your message in JavaRanch. Did you try Tomcat with IIS? I have one problem: when user request jsp pages, browser keeps loading something after all the contents are displayed. Any suggestion?
Thanks and have a nice day!
