Subject Updated Docs for Tomcat 4
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2001 04:04:30 GMT
I've just posted an update on the documentation that will be included in
the Tomcat 4.0 final release.  This is available online at:

Highlights of the recent additions to the documentation include:

* Server Configuration Reference is nearly complete (only a few
  more missing pages).

* Class Loader HOW-TO explains how the class loaders in Tomcat 4
  are implemented, and where you should put your classes to make
  them available to web applications.

* Manager HOW-TO documents the use of the Manager web application
  for dynamically deploying and undeploying web applications
  without restarting Tomcat.

* Realm HOW-TO document for the three standard Realm implementations
  (JDBCRealm, JNDIRealm (!), and MemoryRealm).

Things still on the TODO list:

* Configuration instructions for populating the JNDI context that
  is provided to web applications (such as connection pools).

* Configuration of the built-in servlets provided with Tomcat 4
  that are configured from $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml.

* Configuration of the mod_webapp connector (in the same style as
  the rest of the Tomcat 4 docs).

* Other things that people tell us are still missing -- but it's
  more likely to get done if you offer actual documents instead
  of just suggestions :-)
