TechBookReport on 'Tomcat: Definitive Guide'
Author: JT Smith
Tomcat is the world's most popular Java servlet and JSP container, without question. It's a key part of the open source stack that powers many web applications - both in the enterprise and on the internet. However, if we're honest getting Tomcat installed, configured and tuned is no easy task in many cases, particularly for more complex applications. Tomcat: The Definitive Guide aims to be just that, the definitive guide to all aspects of Tomcat installation, configuration and administration. Specifically the book covers Tomcat 5.5 and Tomcat 6.0, though the latter is recommended by the authors and gets most of the attention.
