Subject Tomcat 4.0 Milestone 4
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2000 00:09:41 GMT
Hey folks,

I'm planning on cutting a fourth milestone of Tomcat 4.0 tomorrow
(Wednesday) evening.  This milestone will reflect all of the changes
that occurred in the servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 specifications between
public draft and proposed final draft (and there were a *bunch* of
them), completion of the remaining new 2.3/1.2 functionality, and
several bug fixes.

This will be the last big push of spec-related functionality additions
for Tomcat 4.0.  Now, we can turn our attention more towards bug fixes
and performance tuning.  You can help in that process by downloading and
playing with the Tomcat 4.0 milestone.  I'd like to see us shake it out
enough to be production quality by Christmas time.

Besides bug fixing and tuning, I know of several pieces of functionality
yet to be added that are being worked on, including:

* Web connectors (using a new connector protocol
  called mod_warp that is aware of webapp configuration
  settings, so you will not have to configure things twice).

* JNDI context support (like that used in J2EE servers)
  for the <env-entry> and <resource-ref> configuration
  parameters in the deployment descriptor.

If you are interested in contributing to Tomcat 4.0, there is a "wish
list" document in file "catalina/STATUS.html" in the jakarta-tomcat-4.0
source tree.  Feel free to propose new ideas, or to volunteer to work on
one of these.
