At the moment we have Tomcat 4.1.24 running as a standalone webserver (on W2K). The application we are running is 99% dynamic. We do need virtual hosts, or the equivalent in Tomcat. I was wondering what the best option would be. I believe there are two options. First we leave the situation as it is, and use the virtual hosts equivalent for Tomcat. The second is to install Apache and setup virtual hosts there.
I wonder what the best is, considering we barely serve static pages. What's the easiest to setup? If we install Apache, does that mean we have to run one instance of Tomcat for each virtual host? (I've heard that this is possible, but never have used it. Maybe I misunderstood.) What does this mean for server load?
