What is the best approach for running two separate Tomcat server ? The reason for doing so is that I want to separate two web applications and want them to run independently of each other.
It will also be optimum if I can get away without hand-rolling my own tomcat installation. I prefer the stock debian tomcat package, as I will get security/updates from the vendor automatically. But I would not mind downloading a binary distribution (with all features enabled), and install two separate copies of Tomcat, if that's the only way to go.
Both of the tomcat instances will run behind an Apache server with mod_proxy.
