Subject RE: tomcat 4.0.4 rpm release
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2002 13:42:20 GMT
I'm working on an updated release, which fix
some minors problems and better respect of FHS layout
(ie /var/run/tomcat4 => /var/cache/tomcat4 for work/temp)

>the RPM will be named tomcat4 to allow coexistence

>Here is the release notes for the tomcat4.0.x RPM builds.
>
>o Starting with Tomcat 4.0.4, there is 2 differents kind

>  available at jakarta.apache.org
>
> - TOMCAT 4 LIGHT EDITION FOR JDK 1.4
>
>   This version is a minimal Tomcat 4.0 release with
>   no support for javamail, tyrex extensions.
>
>   So it didn't include activation, javamail, jdbc2ext,
>   or tyrex.
>
>   To meet RPM packaging policies, some required packages
>   like jakarta-regexp 1.2, servlet API 2.3 and an XML parser
>   (ie xerces 1.44), will be linked in tomcat4 directories at
>   install time and as such, should be present in system before
>   tomcat4.
>
>
> - TOMCAT 4 FULL EDITION
>
>   This version include full support for javamail, jndi and
>   tyrex datasources.
>
>   The rpm include activation.jar, javamail.jar, jdbc2ext and
>   tyrex 0.9.7.0.
>   The rpm also include jndi.jar for JDK 1.2.
>
>   It also include jakarta-regexp 1.2 and servlet 2.3 APIs,
>   and xerces 1.44.
>
>
>o SSL support
>
>   SSL support is compiled in, but due to crypto regulation, JSSE
>   jars are not distributed with either version of Tomcat 4 rpm.
>   To make use of SSL, you should have JDK 1.4 or JSSE 1.0.2
>   jars in CLASSPATH, or in server/lib.
>
>  If you have JSSE jars on your system, jcert.jar, jsse.jar,
>  jnet.jar, just define JSSE_HOME in /etc/tomcat4/conf/tomcat4.conf
>  those JAR files will be added to thei system class path.
>
>
>o FHS layout
>
>  Starting with Tomcat 4.O.4, rpm is more FHS compliant,
>  configuration is on /etc/tomcat4/conf, log goes in
>  /var/log/tomcat4, run files in /var/run/tomcat4 and
>  temp files in /var/run/tomcat4/temp.
>  To make Tomcat 4 works, symlinks are made between real
>  FHS location and basedir, /var/tomcat4, location
>
>
>o Tomcat 4 configuration
>
>  A configuration file /etc/tomcat4/conf/tomcat4.conf is loaded
>  before Tomcat or Jasper start and could be used to tuned JVM
>  params
>
>
>o Tomcat 4 / Jasper 4 invocation
>
>  Tomcat 4.0 invoker script is tomcat4, Jasper 4.0 is jasper4
>  Take a look at /etc/tomcat4/conf/tomcat4.conf for tuning
>
>
>o Running mode
>
>  For security purposes tomcat4 will run as user tomcat4, which
>  should be created by rpm at install time. Warning this user
>  should have a login shell to be able to use the su exec command
>
>
>o Listen ports
>
>  Starting with Tomcat 4.0.4, Tomcat 4.0 will listen on standard ports,
>  ie port 8080 (HTTP 1.1), 8081 (HTTP 1.0), 8443 (HTTP SSL), 
>8009 (AJP13),
>  8008 (WARP).
>
>  To avoid collision with running TC 3.x, you could use the 
>reloctomcat4
>  command which will change these ports to 8180, 8181, 8453 and 8109.
