Subject Tomcat startup time
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2000 17:26:42 GMT
Hello,

I noticed that the time to serve the first servlet or a JSP has increased
dramatically. I traced this down to the initialization of
java.security.SecureRandom, which is used for generating the session IDs. On
may machine the delay was about 5 seconds, which I consider quite
inconvenent for the development environment, when the user is likely to want
to restart the server often.

So I think it would be useful to allow disabling the use of SecureRandom and
use Random instead, possibly by an option in server.xml or by a system
property (or both).

What do you think ?

Petr
