Blog : Escape JEE Bloat: Implement a Lightweight App Server Architecture

posted by Stacey Schneider on October 15, 2012 08:05 AM

Traditional Java EE (JEE) app servers bring complexity to the mix. In addition, they are costly and consume a lot of resources. Forrester wrote an article in 2011 about the costs saying, “Use Apache Tomcat. It is free.” IDC’s research from 2011 points how enterprises are moving “toward lower-cost application platforms that shift them closer to private, public, and hybrid cloud offerings.” Of course, you can find plenty of historical posts and debates from practitioners on costs and resources from past years.

Blog : 5 Scenarios and Best Practices for Running Multiple Instances of Tomcat or tc Server

posted by chanthing on October 8, 2012 05:25 AM

Tomcat supports multiple instances, and you should consider installing Tomcat so that a single binary runtime directory supports multiple instances as a means of adhering to security best practices.

While the documentation on multiple instances is in the RUNNNING.txt file at the root of the Tomcat binary distribution file hierarchy, many people aren’t necessarily aware of the feature or why you might use it. To provide some insight, let’s look at how this functionality works and provide some insight to the related best practice for security.
