I have an (Ubuntu 10.4) server running Apache2 web server. So far so good, I have a few extensions setup just the way I hoped for, I'm happy.
But now I'd like to try out Apache Solr because I'd rather work out the quirks to setup a nice robust environment while we only have a few hundred thousand records, it's easier than when we have a few billions.
Given it seems you need more than just Apache2 and the JDK to run it (right ?), I have to choose between Tomcat and Jetty, but I never used either of them (well I used Tomcat 10 years ago, but it's been so long, I forgot everything about it).
My initial choice was Tomcat because that's what most tutorials use and it has the most documentation about running it in parallel with Apache2; however Jetty seems to be an interesting alternative and it's even used by the official tutorial.
So what would be better to use with Apache2 and Solr, Tomcat or Jetty ?
