In the directory "proposals/catalina/docs" there is a (somewhat dated)
"index.html" file that describes some of the original thinking behind
proposal, and forms the basis of what I presented along with the JavaOne
presentation.  In addition, the "proposals/catalina/docs/config"
contains the beginnings of reference documentation about all of the
configuration opportunities you have in server.xml -- again it's not
but it's a substantial start.

That's about it at the moment.  But you may also find the Javadoc
comments for
the Catalina source code to be useful (use "./ javadoc" from the
proposals/catalina directory).  There is quite a lot of discussion of
contracts that the various components must obey buried in the API docs.
