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:
- Which of the two approaches would have faster response time (assuming both were running on their own without any other task on server)?
- 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.
