My company is currently using tomcat for web applications. The problem we are having is that new applications that contain memory leaks can bring down the whole container. So we are considering installing multiple tomcat containers, in some cases a contiainer per app. Someone was telling me(over beer) that jboss can be configured so it can run instances of tomcat in their own vm. Is this true?
JBoss does have the option of using Tomcat as the web container. However if you have "memmory leaks" in one app it will still bring JBoss to a crawl too.
