I've run JBoss / Tomcat / Jetty / Apache combinations on Linux with
PostgreSQL, MySQL and Oracle backends with great uptime.  As long as the
code you deploy is reasonably well written the application servers are
quite reliable. I do deployments fairly often, but I have had JBoss /
Apache w/mod_jk up and running unsupervised for over a month before. If
your site is hit hard be sure to setup log rotations before you decide to
"unsupervise" it.
