I am a newbie towards the J2EE world and I'm wondering concerning the performance of Tomcat Multi Threaded model for Servlets instead of Apache Multi Process model. Inside a traditional round robin process arranging OS, apache comes with an advantage because it has multiple processes so will receive a greater slice of processor time as in comparison to Single Process Multi Threaded model.

I understand I am evaluating on just one parameter but could everyone point me with a assets how the threaded model works as in comparison towards the multi process model.

Thanks,
