Tomcat vs. GlassFish

Hello,

1. What would you say are the compelling reasons to move from Tomcat to GlassFish?

2. Are there any good reasons not to move to GlassFish?

Thanks,

Michael

wouldn't say there were any compelling reasons.
You'd consider shifting if glasfish offered some improvement, such as performance, over tomcat that was required.

Let me try to simplify this.  If you were going to install a new system would you use TomCat or GlassFish, and why?

Thanks for you feedback,

Michael

I'd use tomcat. because I've used it for years on many projects and don't see any extra features I need offered by glassfish.

objects,

That is the kind of answer I was looking for.

Thanks,

As long as you use only JSP/Servlet, tomcat is lighter than glassfish. But tomcat is not an JEE application server. i.e. there are no support for EJB.
