Apache Tomcat

Its very reliable and super lightweight. Easy to configure and deployment. Doesn't use lot of resources.

Pros

Using Tomcat from many years to build small and robust java bases applications. It provides excellent functionality for code to execute on your local system which is super helpful for debugging and development. Has good documentation and community support.

Cons

Lack of support in file formats, only supports Jar and War. Sometimes updated code is not applicable unless we stop and start the server. Console is very basic to manage application s and servers.

Open source, free java servlet to implement Java ERPs and act as a HTTP web server!!

Overall experience is good if you want to run your middle size ERPs or websites.

Pros

Apache Tomcat being open source software is getting better after every release as Host developers are contributing towards the improvement of the software. Apache tomcat is very fast and light weight software that can be used as HTTP web server and we can implement Java ERP systems on tomcat. I developed a real estate website on .NET framework and hosted my site using Apache Tomcat web server, loading time of the website is great and apache handles the requests very smoothly.

Cons

UI for administration console is very basic and needs improvements. Setting up security for Administration console is a difficult task. Most of the big applications in corporate sector are running on cluster type infrastructure, sadly tomcat's support to handle cluster level infrastructure is not very good.
