Tomcat is there in most vendor solutions, and people rarely agree to port it to JBoss. So, most business applications have it. Additionally, multiple banking solutions are using Tomcat. Also, the solution runs on Solaris, AIX, Windows, and Linux.

We are using Tomcat and we are making the configuration with the help of Spring Boot only. Tomcat is cloud-based, and all the microservices are developed in Spring Boot.

Our primary case use is for case logs. When the customer tries to log into the application and the webpage does not open I check it from the integration of Tomcat.

We use this solution for our website. When we have to integrate applications like scheduling tools with the website, we use Tomcat. We also use Tomcat to configure the applications that we have with either Automic scheduler or the D-Series scheduler.

Our company is in healthcare, and Tomcat provides a backend server for our REST solution. Tomcat is widely used in Chile as a backend solution for web service and REST environments. Companies frequently use Spring Boot with a Tomcat environment. I'm a developer at a small company, and only 10 people use Tomcat here, but the company has around 100 employees in all.

We are using Tomcat for one Java-based application that's used for any carrier site. We have one portal for carriers. Any external user can apply for whatever openings are there. Through that site they can apply and our HR can review their profile and invite them for an interview. Tomcat is handling all these processes.

Hi peers, I'm researching application servers. Are you aware of any banks or insurance companies that use Tomcat as their primary WAS? Would you recommend it for such industries? Any feedback or alternative solutions?
