Pros and cons for separate Apache Web server

Latest response

We are using EAP 6.4.20 together with the bundled Apache Coyote web server. We are now thinking of installing a separate updated Apache Web server instead.
What are the pros and cons with the separate web server setup?


Need to better define "separate": do you simply mean a dedicated Apache httpd co-located on/in the same host/VM/container as your EAP process or do you mean "on/in a separate host/VM/container"?

Overall, what are you hoping to achieve (or is your goal nebulous and you're looking for pros/cons to justify doing/not doing it)?
