Hello,

I have seens different configuration files with tomcat, and I was wondering wheather I could further improve tomcat performance by changing some settings!

Is it possible, and should I care about these things?

Regards,

Which ones are you looking at?
What have you done so far?
Do you have any means to test performance once you start tweaking the config files (a profiler)?

For load testing your application to gather real data, consider the HttpClient package.
For internal monitoring of response times and the time consumed by various parts of your application, consider the JAmon toolkit.
Without real measurements and measuring technology in hand it doesn't make any sense to fiddle with settings.

Thanks Bill and Ben Souther,

I admit my question was a little to general (sorry). The reason for this was that I do not know anything about how to check performance, and neither how to imrpve it. Thanks to both for informing me about measuring the current performance before starting any changes. Also thanks for the links, I will download those applications and see what I can do with them.

and next time I will try asking more specific questions (sorry for that again)

regards and many thanks,

No problem.

For the most part Tomcat ships in production ready mode.
There are things that you can do for development that will slow it down a bit (such as autoReload, etc).

Profiling your app to find out where the bottlenecks really are is always a good start.
