Yes, there needs to be a separate Developers' Guide.  Here's my first 
pass at that.  I'll be revising my whole TOC as soon as I get some 
coffee, so don't take this *too* seriously... :-)

Part V: Tomcat Development

Covers actually writing code for the Tomcat code base.

1. Tomcat 3.x vs 4.x

2. Overview of Tomcat code base

3. Downloading and Building the source code

4. Fixing Bugs

5. Developing Interceptors (Tomcat 3.x)

6. Developing Valves (Tomcat 4.x)

7. Developing Connectors

-  mod_jserv
-  mod_jk
-  mod_webapp

8. Using Tomcat Utility Classes
