Subject RE: Advantages of different Servlet Containers

Netflix uses Tomcat throuought and they tail the log to figure out whether 
it has started, except they look for a message from Solr to see whether 
Solr is ready to go to work.

Just go for Tomcat. For all its problems, and I should know having used 
it since it was originally JavaWebServer, it is perfectly capable of 
handling high-end production environments provided you tune it 
correctly. We use it with our customized Solr 1.3 version without any 
problems.
