Subject Re: Tomcat 5.5

Hi All,

Well now I feel like a bone head. A friend was complaining that the  
5.5 docs were hard to follow so I figured I'd just update a bit  
without trying them since at one point they worked for me.

Well I just went through and deployed the myfaces-examples and  
myfaces-simple-examples webapps and both work (neither have the  
jsp2.0 jar file anymore though). I downloaded from the 1.0.9 build.

So I'm not sure that the directions are valid at all. From looking at  
the build files nothing appears to be using the tomcat.pre. 
5.5.version flag anymore anyway. Perhaps whatever required these two  
changes (removing the two jar files) before deploying to 5.5 has been  

I'd be glad to remove the tomcat5.5.xml file from the docs if  
everyone concurs that there is not an issue anymore.

Does anyone have an older version (I tried 5.5.9 and 5.5.7, I could  
not find an older one) to try out the examples out on? If its not  
been a problem since 5.5.1 or so then we could probably remove our  
cautionary info from the docs.
