Overview

Pro Apache Tomcat 5/5.5 is ideal for Tomcat administrators and folks who want to configure Tomcat. Author Matthew Moodie describes configuration files, as well as administration features like security, auto-deployment, remote deployment, and datasources.

Moodie wastes no time on Java or JSP introductions, and discusses JSP and Java code minimally. He gets right to the point and teaches you to use Tomcat. (This book exclusively covers Tomcat 5.5.x as well as Tomcat 5.x, while other books still linger on version 4.) And while other Tomcat books are collaborative efforts, written by multiple authors, this book sails smoothly with Moodie's narration alone.

    compatible with Microsoft

    Tomcat continues to aggressively improve. Moodie explains the latest version, which reflects considerable donated coding effort by its worldwide base of developers. The book shows how even if you are running a Microsoft server, you can deploy Tomcat. A chapter on its connectors carefully goes into why you might want to use Microsoft's IIS web server and hook this to Tomcat, where here Tomcat has the role of the container for servlets and JSPs. While many Tomcat fans use it on linux or unix machines, Moodie describes how pragmatically, Tomcat can be easily installed and function well under Microsoft. It is probably also a sign of the dangers of intrusions like malware that the book also has a very extensive explanation of user authentication and security. (The times we live in.) Vital if you are deploying Tomcat in a commercial venture.
