We have Apache Tomcat running on Windows Server 2008. Is there a problem to install IIS on the same machine?


You will need to either bind them to different IP addresses or different ports.

If I remember correctly, Tomcat's default port is 8080? If it's still running on 8080 then they will live side by side quite nicely. Otherwise, you will need to add a 2nd IP address to your Windows installation and bind Tomcat to one and IIS to the other.


This should not be a problem.

There is a module for IIS that will allow you to serve up tomcat through IIS. This way you can use port 80 or 443 for everything.


There is a slight security risk whenever you host multiple applications on the same server in that a security hole with either application could allow both to be compromised by an attacker.
