Ok. Face the music. Let’s debug.
What is happening here?
We all recognize the need for both server and application monitoring in a production environment and Tcat Server makes this easy. However, the development and QA process can also benefit from this feature.
At MuleSoft I’m often asked to write small one-off webapps for different parts of our internal infrastructure — often they are interim solutions or somewhat experimental; since these are somewhat less critical applications, at best I’ll create some unit tests,
Code Camp continues to grow by leaps and bounds each year. For those not familiar with Code Camp, it’s an all volunteer run conference at Foothill College each October and is on version 5.0. It lasts the whole weekend and this year over 3000 people registered and over 1900 ended up spending their weekend attending technical sessions ranging from How to Teach Programming to Kids to HTML5 Crash Course.

But, there are some general performance tips that apply regardless of these important details. In general, Tomcat performs better when you:
