Now that FreeBSD 6.2 is out, can anyone recommend specific releases of JVM
and Tomcat that deliver a really stable and fast (emphasizing stable) J2EE
platform on 6.2? In the absence of such, info about 6.1 would also be
I'm also curious about whether I need to consider installing Linux
compatability so I can install a Linux-based JVM, vs. the native JVMs now
available. If the Linux compat layer is not needed to achieve a stable
environment, that would be great.
I'm happy to RTFM on this, but I can't seem to find info about *version
combinations on FreeBSD in specific*, and thus specific ports/packages that
may be "production worthy". If I were to go to the Tomcat website, read the
info about the JVM version required for my favorite version of Tomcat and
install them both, I might end up with an installation that demonstrates
problems specific to the FreeBSD ports, so I want to be careful here.
If I've missed some obvious documentation, I apologize in advance.
