Subject [Geronimo Wiki] Trivial Update of "Tomcat" by jgenender
Date Thu, 16 Jun 2005 03:39:03 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Geronimo Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by jgenender:
http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo/Tomcat

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  The Tomcat integration is made up of a set of GBeans that represent the different Tomcat
components (i.e. Container, Connectors,  Engine, Host, Valves, etc).  The top level and managing
component, the {{{org.apache.geronimo.tomcat.TomcatContainer}}} class is the Tomcat GBean
(aka service) of Apache Geronimo.  The integration includes its own Tomcat deployer which
allows custom configuration of Tomcat.
  
- The GBean implementation provides for true integration with Geronimo, allowing Tomcat to
fully utilize Geronimo security (JACC/JAAS), transactions, initial contexts, and JNDI.  The
Tomcat integration currently supports the just mentioned Geronimo functions, but also leverages
Tomcat facilities, such as virtual hosts and SSL.

  There is one major difference in the Geronimo/Tomcat integration that should be noted. 
There are no server.xml or context.xml files.  These have been replaced by the j2ee-server-tomcat-plan.xml
and geronimo-tomcat.xml files.  The j2ee-server-tomcat-plan.xml is the equivalent of the server.xml
file and contains many of the components that its Tomcat cousin offers, albeit in a different
format.  The geronnimo-tomcat.xml file is the equivalent of the context.xml and is used in
the web application for runtime deployment and configuration of the web application.
