Run servlets on Domino server or deploy Apache?

We are deploying a Web application where reports are to be accessed via servlets. It is a Domino server and data for reports reside in Oracle. At any given time there would be 200,000 records in Oracle.

We have two possibilities:

a) Run servlets on Domino server to serve the reports.
b) Deploy Apache and serve reports using servlets.

My questions are:

  1. Which of the two approaches would have faster response time (assuming both were running on their own without any other task on server)?
  2. Would running servlets on a Domino server have load on Domino server (i.e., slow down the server a lot)?

If your servlets are just accessing the database and are not using any Domino objects, I would run them without the overhead of a Domino server.
