I have Tomcat 6.0 up and running. I went to tweak the memory sizes and realized that I have it running on the Sun JDK 1.6 client JVM. I don't have the Sun server JVM installed:
C:\>java -client -version java version "1.6.0_16" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode, sharing) C:\>java -server -version Error: no `server' JVM at `C:\appl\java\jre6u16\bin\server\jvm.dll'.
To clarify: I know how to switch JVMs in Tomcat from client to server. I just have to pick the most appropriate server JVM.
Am I going to notice a big difference between client and server JVMs? If I want the Sun server JVM, do I have to reinstall the whole JDK? Are there other free server alternatives that would be good for running Tomcat?
