Subject Does Geronimo use tomcat?
Date Thu, 18 Mar 2004 16:55:08 GMT

I was browsing the various Geronimo web sites today, starting with  I see mention of Jetty on the
left-hand menu bar, which I assume is used for Servlets, and maybe also
HTTP connection handling.  Is my assumption wrong?

If my assumption is right, I'd like to know why Jetty was chosen over
Tomcat.  This is surprising, especially in light of the statement on the
incubator front page that "The aim of the project is to produce a large
and healthy community of J2EE developers tasked with the development of
an open source, certified J2EE server, that is ASF licensed and passes
Sun's TCK reusing the best ASF/BSD licensed code available today and
adding new code to complete the J2EE stack."  Jetty is neither ASF nor
BSD licensed from what I see, choosing its own license

A search of this list's archives
comes up with a few hits and references, including one from Senor
Srinivas asking to update the Geronimo Maven repository with Tomcat

So what's the status?  If tomcat is used, shouldn't that be documented
somewhere?  If tomcat is not used, why?  Do we need a bit more
communications between tomcat-dev and Geronimo-dev?
