RTC 6.0.1 linux installation: Liberty vs Tomcat


Christopher Starr (44113) | asked Dec 30 '15, 5:41 p.m.
We currently have RTC 5.0.2 installed on linux using tomcat. We are now upgrading to RTC 6.0.1. Starting in version 6.0.1, Apache Tomcat is not provided as the default application server. While I do see that Tomcat 7.0.59 is supported, we are considering switching to use the new WebSphere Liberty default. Are there advantages to staying with Tomcat, or does the new WebSphere Liberty default work well? Will we run into any anticipated issues switching to WebSphere Liberty? Note that we are a small group of about 20 developers and we only run JTS and CCM. Is WebSphere Liberty lightweight enough for us? Thanks for any guidance.

I personally would recommend switching to WebSphere Liberty.   I have used that without any difficulties in my test installations, and have not heard of any problems associated with switching.   If anyone has encountered problems (or has heard of someone encountering problems) with Liberty, please post a follow-up here.
