Likelihood to Recommend

Apache Tomcat

Tomcat is more than enough to deploy most of the mid-end web applications without any problem but for the high-end applications which require high scalability and high availability, which might need some tune-ups with the support of expertise in this regard. Otherwise, you may realize numerous performance issues, memory leaks, server crashes etc.

It's very powerful to control inventories of your products. You need to go step by step with all the involved persons/departments to get the results pre-authorized. Each one of us must check and confirm the request before it goes to another one. Is very important to analyze the request and create it.

  • In the beginning, it's kinda hard to learn.
  • The reports are full of data but in some transactions there are missing options.
  • Not too easy for a custom format.
  • We are using an old version and the exports formats are too old.

Usability

Tomcat has a very rich API set which allows us to implement our automation script to trigger the deployment, configure, stop and start Tomcat from the command line. In our projects, we embedded Tomcat in our Eclipse in all of the developer's machines so they could quickly verify their code with little effort, Azure Webapp has strong support for Tomcat so we could move our application to Azure cloud very easy. One drawback is Tomcat UI quite poorly features but we almost do not use it.

Tomcat doesn't have a built-in watchdog that ensures restart upon failure, so you have to provide it externally. A very good solution is java service wrapper. The community edition is able to restart Tomcat upon out of memories exceptions.

Tomcat support to customize memory used and allow us to define the Connection pool and thread pool to increase system performance and availability, Tomcat server itself consume very little memory and almost no footprint. We use Tomcat in our production environment which has up to thousands of concurrent users and it is stable and provides a quick response.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Tomcat

Apache Tomcat is more lightweight and much quicker to deploy, so compared to JBoss or Weblogic it's much more efficient and cost effective for deploying small apps. The instances start up almost immediately and almost no maintenance is needed from the admins. There is also no cost incurred on dealing with licensing costs

The servers rarely go down. Most of the time are on a programed maintenance schedule. We have our system in 2 countries and it's very fast and 3 years ago just one failed and it was in our principal office. I think that we selected SAP because the numbers of employees and the knowledge that they have of the system. We were about to change but SAP was the best option. Is very stable and complete for our needs.

  • Great ROI. We need to invest in new developments, making it more functional for our business.
  • We have requests that couldn't be duplicated. Maybe we need to pay to fix that.
  • We have a lot of transactions and don't have anyone that can guide us to the ones that we need to improve our business.
