Is there any other way to implement jsp pages on an Apache server other than Tomcat?  The development platform is Windows 2003 server with Apache.  I am looking for additional options if there are any.  Please respond with specific references I can research if there are any.    Thanks.

There are other servlet engines -- is that what you're looking for?  Our experience with Tomcat on Windows 2003 is great, so we recommend that.  JRun is no longer supported, so we don't recommend that.  Jetty is widely used, and has a relatively small footprint. Jigsaw is too limited in functionality, in my opinion.  Zeus is not free -- don't know if that's a factor.

Most of the others are either variations of Tomcat (WebLogic, WebSphere) or not recommended, like Enhydra.  Oracle's servlet engine is not too bad, but of course very focused on their environment.  Sun's iPlanet could be good -- again, there's money involved.

Tomcat is the reference implementation for servlets and JSP pages, so you're more likely to find the latest functionality, debugged, at reasonable performance, in Tomcat.
