Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0 Milestone 4
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2000 20:18:02 GMT

In case you're interested, we've written a short document about
Catalina's Features And Benefits (FAB) that is more geared for
non-geeks (it's very marketingly-written :) that you may want to
include with the M4 docs.  I've attached it to this mail.  It's a
plain text version, but I'm sure it would look better as HTML.
Let us know if there's anything inaccurate about the details it
contains.  It was written by William Abernathy 
( and myself.  Let us know what you think.

And, BTW, great work on making Catalina the first Servlet 2.3
compliant servlet container!
