Apache Tomcat is one of the foremost JavaEE application servers in the market. It is mostly preferred by customers for application deployment. For an effective application performance management, monitoring of performance and availability is highly important.
AppDynamics identifies business transactions from common entry points such as struts actions, servlets, web services calls, custom POJO, and spring MVC in Tomcat and its JVM . This enables users to understand how business transactions take place through various Java components like EJB, SOAP, JDBC, CICS, JMS, as well as CLR calls and remote calls cross JVM for distributed transactions.
