Our Java environment

We run Tomcat application server on Oracle JVM. Tomcat is run behind Apache HTTPd front-end so we could support additional environments - e.g. PHP.

We offer shared Tomcat hosting only. That is - one Tomcat running in one Java JVM hosts multiple web applications.

In order to provide isolation between applications of different customers Tomcat is started with its security manager enabled.

Tomcat calls the root directory of a domain or subdomain "application base" (appBase config option). Apache HTTPd calls it "document root" (DocumentRoot config option). In our environment Tomcat and Apache HTTPd virtual hosts are pointed to the same directory so DocumentRoot and appBase are the same thing.
