Overall Satisfaction with Apache Tomcat

In my company this software is used to deploy every web app that we produce. Each department of my company develops web apps that are suitable for Apache Tomcat; this software is our official servlet container. We configured it to handle hundreds of concurrent sessions, SSL connections, and redeploy web apps on the fly and so on.
  • Very configurable to handle web apps deployed in many different places
  • Very reliable and extensible
  • It's used all over the world, it's very well documented and you can easily find solutions for your problems
  • Sometimes it's not that easy to configure, we had problems configuring the SSL connection
  • It doesn't have an EJB container
  • We saved a lot of money adopting this free software
  • JBoss Application Server
Apache Tomcat is a very famous software, it's extensively used by the community, it's open source. All these peculiarities make this software very reliable so you can use it in production environments, no worries. If for some reason you need weird configurations, then it may be better to adopt a paid software with official support.
