The two things that I like about Glassfish vs Tomcat is the administrative interface and the updater for Glassfish that makes upgrading to new releases/fixes very easy. I am a casual user of Tomcat and new to Glassfish so I don't proclaim to be a expert on either. I have been primarily a Tomcat 5.x user and with Tomcat 7 out it could be that Tomcat 7 has all the features that GF 3.1.1 has.

I am sure there are many comparisons of GF vs Tomcat out there on the web. In this particular case, it wasn't superior function or performance that drove me to GF. I have a client that uses GF and although running it on Windows is fine, I have more horsepower and memory on my i than on my Windows server, as well as IBM i being my preferred server platform. So, being able to run GF on i was good news to me.
