I am going to download JBoss and was wondering if I should download JBoss with Tomcat or just use JBoss's servlet/jsp engine.
Is the servlet engine best in JBoss or Tomcat.
Thanks

The standard distribution of JBoss comes with Jetty as the Servlet/JSP Engine. As you noticed, you can basically plugin any Servlet/JSP Engine if it has an adapter written for it. So far only Tomcat, Jetty, and Resin have adapters (that I know of).
Personally, I prefer Resin if the client is willing to pay the license fee or Jetty if not. It is really an individual preference, if you know/like Tomcat then feel free to go with that.

Thanks for the reply. IF anyone cares to mention WHY they like a specific servlet/jsp container, please let me know. Does anyone know of a link or something that may compare these (Resin, Jetty, Tomcat, etc) different containers/engines side by side? That would be great too.
Just looking for the best performance and ease of use.
Thanks

Check out this link: Servlet Container Performance Report. As with anything performance related, you really need to test your application to get a real comparison.
Basically, for performance and ease of use, you can't beat Resin in most cases. Of course, as I alluded to earlier, Resin does have a licensing fee.

Thanks Chris. That link was perfect!
 
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
