General J2EE: Multiple JVM instances in one App Server instance

  1. Hi

    I am relatively new to Application Server space. I wanted to know whether it is possible to start multiple JVM instances on one single application server instance.

    I already know that it is possible to start multiple application server instances - but till now I have always come across the line that: One Application Server instance = One JVM

    I am particularly interested in knowing this because while going through the 'Remote Debugging' provided by JPDA, I observed, that only one debugging client can connect to one JVM. Because of that, me and my team mate were not able to simultaneously debug applications installed on the application server.

    If anyone could clarify this doubt, it will be really a great help.

  2. Check out the options to be used in jvm12.conf at following site and check that all the parameters are set correctly
