[Laszlo-dev] Thoughts on deployment?

Use the Eclipse Laszlo IDE inside Eclipse
Create a J2EE based application containing eclipse components, and then
use Eclipse to export a WAR / EAR file.
Copy the war file into your tomcat webapps directory and you are just
about ready to go....
Would be interested in seeing your prototype in due course.

Subject: [Laszlo-dev] Thoughts on deployment?
Having just been through the woes of tracking down performance issues,
deploying a laszlo app has become a concern of mine, simply because
I'm not at all familiar with Java or Java servlets.
Right now we're deploying our prototype with IIS 6 and Tomcat via the
Tomcat ISAPI redirector. I think this is fine for showcasing the
prototype, but I have concerns about this as a deployment strategy for
an actual production piece.
I was wondering what thoughts/experiences people had on deploying
production Laszlo apps. If the prototype is sold, then we're looking
at a site that gets upwards of 250,000 to 500,000 unique visitors a
month. Since the backend is entirely .NET, I'll obviously be
deploying that part on a farm of windows servers, but I'm wondering
what the best option is for deploying the laszlo portion.
One thought I had was placing the laszlo app on a linux or bsd box
(boxes) using Apache and Tomcat and having that speak to the .NET
So I guess my questions are:
- Is there something more stable and performanced tuned than Tomcat?
- Is it better to do a webserver + java app server, or will just the
app server suffice?
- Is there a performance benefit to going with Linux/*BSD over
