Is is better to host two different websites on one tomcat instance?


One tomcat instance for each website?

same instant is fine. it depends how loaded are the sites, and if the need special configuration and loaded modules, but it usually easier to maintain a single instance.

Two tomcat instances would be a memory pig and no performance advantages. Handle any unique vhosts, etc by the apache proxy to tomcat and serve the sites up via apache.
