Apache Jakarta-Tomcat, the official reference implementation for the Java servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies, has long been heralded as an excellent platform for the development and deployment of powerful Web applications. Version 4.0 offers not only numerous enhancements in flexibility and stability, but also an array of features that expand upon the Tomcat developer's already wealthy toolset.

In this namesake title, best-selling author James Goodwill provides readers with a thorough introduction to Jakarta-Tomcat, offering instruction on topics ranging from the basic installation and configuration process and Web application deployment to advanced concepts of integration with other popular Apache Foundation projects such as the Apache Web server, Struts, Log4J, and the Apache XML SOAP Project.

In addition to an already comprehensive introduction to core Tomcat functionality, readers also benefit from a valuable primer of what is offered in version 4.0, as Goodwill takes care to thoroughly discuss new features such as valves, security realms, persistent sessions, and the Tomcat Manager Application. In summary, Apache Jakarta-Tomcat offers both novice and advanced Jakarta-Tomcat users a practical and comprehensive guide to this powerful software.
