Subject Re: watchdog for tomcat 3.x
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2001 00:31:37 GMT


There is/was? a 2.2/1.1 watchdog implementation and I'm sure somebody
from jakarta will be able to point you at it.

However a few words of warning about it.   I used it to test my 2.2
servlet container and while I found it reasonably good (and it flushed
out several important issues), it did have a few tests that tested what
tomcat did rather than what the spec said.

When I raised these issues I got little feedback other than from
others who had found the same thing.    I got the strong feeling that
watchdog 3 was an orphan child and that all the effort was going
into watchdog 4.

So do use it, but analyse each failure against the spec in detail.

I'm expecting that watchdog 4 will be a lot better and at least looks
like it has active developers caring for it.  Pity I have not caught
up with the servlet spec yet....
