Subject Re: The plans are to cut a final release of 3.1 this week...

Although slightly slower for static content, we have been using native java
web servers such as JWS which work well. I intend to use tomcat in
standalone mode rather than in combination with appache. You are right, in
that, at the moment Tomcat does not have SSL connectors. I think there are
open-source java SSL libraries which could be used to create https

If I remember correctly these libraries have some switching mechanism to
either user a native implementation or the default native java
implementation. I hope to see/contribute to the development/integration of
https connectors in the 3.2 development if they are included in the
development scope.

We'll just have to wait till all the 3.1 release frenzy is dies down :-).

On this topic, since apache  "owns" the Tomcat development, are apache
members opposed to Tomcat being run as an alternative to apache or is the
focus more on Tomcat being run as an apache pluggin? Right now we can use
arguments that apache is more stable/production ready than Tomcat, but
hopefully this won't be the case for long.
