I need to be careful here... When you say "app server"...
Do you mean the same physical or virtual server (I mean the hardware - cpu/memory/disk box)? Or do you really mean what you said, the "app server" - Tomcat/Websphere/Jetty etc?
If you mean the same physical machine running Jira, Confluence and Stash separately (i.e. three application servers), then yes, it will work, as long as you have enough resources for all three to run simultaneously.
If you really do mean all in the same container/app-server, then no, absolutely not. In theory you can. In reality, Atlassian really really really recommend you don't do it, and my opinion is that their advice is right - I've never seen it work well enough to be called anything better than "unhealthy". "Disasterous" would be a better word.
Many thanks for the speedy responses, Fabio and Nic. Sorry for the confusion concerning the term 'app server'. I meant it to mean the server hosting the applications, not the server hosting the database(s). Each app will definitely have it's own tomcat container. This helps a lot!
Apologies for getting picky, but I've answered based on the wrong assumption of what someone means by "application server" too many times. What's particularly annoying is I use the term regularly myself without explaining which one I mean. I got caught a while ago when someone taking minutes of a technical meeting pointed out "Nic really did say that we could run several application servers on the application server". So now, I ask...
