Hi,
I am deveolping a chat applet. There are no static pages. Its is just applets calling other applets, and servlets used for server side processing. In this case do i really need Tomcat to be run under Apache or can i use Tomcat alone. So far i've used Tomcat alone and it works fine. What i want to know is that if i use Tomcat under Apache will the performance be better??
Kindest regards..

Use Tomcat Alone. No need of Apache.

Hi,
No, U cann't run Tomcat without Apache.Keep in kind that Apache is working as a Web server and serving any request or response thru web.And Tomcat is working as a Container where u get the java environment and able to run java classes.
You can run Tomcat alone only u r using standalone machine.
Though I am not confirmed.Any one else can guide..

hi,
you can run tomcat standalone. there is no configuration need for this case. you only need to configure some stuff if your using apache with tomcat.
