Subject Re: Àpache webserver vs. Tomcat
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2010 12:14:33 GMT

You are on the wrong mailing list, but I'll try to help. 'Classic Apache',
otherwise known as httpd, is a http server written in C.

Tomcat is a http server and servlet container written in Java. It can
operate completely independently of httpd.

There are connectors that allow you to put httpd in front, passing selective
requests back to a tomcat instance.
