Tomcat track at ApacheConUS2009. The Tomcat track is scheduled for Wednesday

Project Management Committee: Tomcat PMC

Subprojects covered by Track: Tomcat, Tomcat connectors and mod_proxy of httpd.

PMC Liason/Spokesorganizer(s): Jean-Frederic Clere

Planning Team Mentor & Liason: Bill Rowe

Track Description

This track will give you all you need to know about the latest features, and help you to make the most of Tomcat - either standalone or together with a front-end server.

We'll explain a little of our 10 year history, the versions we support, the project structure and how the development takes place. We will, of course, also present the new features of the next version of Tomcat, Tomcat 7, for all our users.

Later on, we'll look deeper in the Tomcat internals, starting with a session on the new asynchronous servlet processing features provided in Tomcat 7. Our technical sessions will teach you how to get the best out of Tomcat's features making your Tomcat secure. And if you've already got that, we'll also go through integrating Tomcat with a front-end server, to build a cluster of Tomcats!

Target Audience

Our first 3 sessions are for both prospective and current Tomcat users, the other ones are for Tomcat users and Administrators.
