We are using Tomcat and Oracle. We have experience with Tomcat and decided to use the Debian packaged version of Tomcat. We have experience with both MySQL and Oracle, but Oracle performed better.

All I can really say is DON'T USE SQL SERVER. The performance is pretty bad for Grouper.

are MySQL, so our choices were mostly driven by the expertise we had on hand.

We're currently embarking upon an effort to deploy Grouper and I'm

database storage. Any details on why you made these particular choices
is of interest as well.

Also I'd like to know if you're planning on migrating to different
technology in the future (e.g., Tomcat to Jetty, Oracle to MySQL,

Feel free to respond off-list if preferred.
