    My personal opinion is to resolve ur problems with tomcat better than looking for replacments on IIS because this replacment will not be better

    If u insist to change tomcat here is a list of Excellent alternatives:

    Hello hiteshgpatel,

    I would download Apache, Tomcat and the Jakarta connectors to run JSP on your webserver. Apache is so much better and faster than IIS and defenitely more stable as well, and all you need to get the server running with JSP is FREE...

    Take a look at http://apache.org

    Hope that works for you...

    ;)

    Tim,

    I agree with the link you provided and actually I guess that's the only way to do it. However, what do you think about what I posted above:

    Isn't Apache & Tomcat a better, more stable combination to work with JSP and Apache better as a standalone web server?

    ;)

    Yes, but if it is a company website running IIS, then you have no option

    Most devellopers don't get a choice about what webserver the client or even their own company runs ;-)

    I always use just Tomcat on its own, and miss out the whole apache thing ;-)

    To run JSP on IIS, you still need your Tomcat installed correctly. If your tomcat does not able to run your JSP, meaning although you have IIS ISAPI redirector helps, you would not able to run JSP page too. Dont waste time to run another Web Server for your JSP, i believe Tomcat always the best for it. Check out the proper installation guide here:

    http://www.coreservlets.com/Apache-Tomcat-Tutorial/#Configure-Tomcat

    Hope it is useful you! Good Luck!

    Yes. Wanted to provide a simple installation help to Hitesh. He wanted to run JSP on IIS because he not able to run JSP on Tomcat correctly. (Correct me if i am wrong)

    I am currently configuring IIS and Tomcat to work together too. But that is because i need to run ASP and JSP/Servlet at the same Web Application. If only JSP/Servlet is in the web application. No reason why configure IIS to cater that. Again, Tomcat still need to be there in order to receive request passing by IIS thru JK connector.

    No hard feeling :) It is good, Hitesh has more than one option if he decided to go for IIS+Tomcat. That is the good knowledge to experience!
