we used to host our app in weblogic , now we are migrating to amazon cloud so I am wondering to make it simpler is it a good idea to deploy our app in tomcat ?
weblogic the only problem is any new development I might face c lass loading issues , tomcat does not and its light weight simple etc.
please advice is tomcat widely used in production?
mine is j2ee app using spring, hibernate, cxf, camel, active mq,groovy,jasper reports,oracle databse.
Tomcat is very widely used in production. Additionally, in some versions of VMWare, a copy of Tomcat is installed as part of the VMWare system to serve as the control panel application for the Virtual Machines that are being managed.
You need WebLogic (or something similar) if you need the full J(2)EE stack. Things like JMS, EJB and so forth. For less-ambitious applications (which are most of them), where you only need integral support for servlets and JSPs, Tomcat has the advantage of being less complex and faster startups.
