Turnkey Linux Tomcat on Apache Hosting Appliance

Tomcat + Apache


Tomcat is a servlet container that implements the Java Servlet and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) specifications, and provides a "pure Java" HTTP web server environment for Java code to run in. Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.


This appliance integrates Tomcat with the Apache web server. When a fully featured web server is not required, consider using the Standalone Tomcat Appliance.
