Pow vs Apache Tomcat: What are the differences?
Developers describe Pow as "Zero-configuration Rack server for Mac OS X". Pow is a zero-configuration Rack server for Mac OS X. It makes developing Rails and Rack applications as frictionless as possible. You can install it in ten seconds and have your first app up and running in under a minute. No mucking around with /etc/hosts, no compiling Apache modules, no editing configuration files or installing preference panes. And running multiple apps with multiple versions of Ruby is trivial. On the other hand, Apache Tomcat is detailed as "An open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies". Apache Tomcat powers numerous large-scale, mission-critical web applications across a diverse range of industries and organizations.
Pow and Apache Tomcat can be categorized as "Web Servers" tools.
Pow and Apache Tomcat are both open source tools. It seems that Apache Tomcat with 3.51K GitHub stars and 2.4K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Pow with 3.47K GitHub stars and 259 GitHub forks.
