Subject Tomcat 7 and Geronimo
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2009 18:27:05 GMT
I stumbled across the following presentation about Tomcat 7 yesterday, 
and I was wondering how much of an impact this will be for Geronimo.

Here's the list of new items planned for the release.

New for Tomcat 7
•Servlet 3.0 support
•Cluster communication via UDP
•Significantly improved JMX support - GSOC
•Replace Valves with Filters - GSOC
•Numerous smaller improvements
•Code clean up
–Remove unused stuff
–Resolve inconsistencies

Since Servlet 3.0 is going to be needed for JEE6 support, I'm wondering 
how much effort is going to be required to fit this in. The "Replace 
Valves with Filters" item might be a particular problem, since I know 
there was a bit of Valves work that has gone into past releases.
