Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Tomcat 3.3 RPM for Release Candidate 1 ready
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2001 16:22:04 GMT
All the RPM are ready now at :

Starting with the Tomcat 3.3 RC1, the RPM is more FHS compliant and run as
nobody by default 
many RPM enhancements from suggestion from Keith Irwin , Nicolas Mailhot and
Jun Inamori. 
A big thanks to all of them 

the RPM is more FHS compliant : 
bindir is in /etc/tomcat/conf 
confdir is in /etc/tomcat/conf 
logdir in /var/log/tomcat 
workdir in /var/spool/tomcat 
webapps and libs and modules in /var/tomcat in /var/spool/tomcat 
tomcat run as nobody and the /usr/bin/tomcat command enforce it .
You could use /usr/bin/dtomcat instead to run tomcat under your 
own account but be carefull in that case with new files access.

TOMCAT_HOME is now /etc/tomcat and TOMCAT_INSTALL is /var/tomcat.

a config file is available for init.d script tuning, tomcat.conf, in

no external parser is required since crimson (jaxp 1.1) is now included 

Warning, now webapps lives into /var/tomcat != /etc/tomcat so you should
take care of setting 
docBase to /var/tomcat/webapps/yourapp since it will by default gooes to 
/etc/tomcat/webapps/yourapp instead (cf etc/apps-examples.xml) 

for tomcat-mod the Apache 2.0 has been removed since all works is
now conducted in J-T-C ....
