Subject Re: Tomcat 4.0

Hi,

The 2.3/1.2 spec requires implementations to be backward compatible.

http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/

"As required by the specifications, Tomcat 4.0 also supports web
applications built for the Servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 specifications with no
changes."

As far as the choice between 3.3.1 and 4.x, people have their favorites. A
lot of people run either very happily. There are arguments for both
approaches, but I'd say the critical factor for you is how involved your
users are in the administration of some Tomcat instance. The decision is
yours; I suppose you could offer both environments as "development" for any
of your customers interested in migration. Let them do the assessment for
you :)

Regards,
Michael Locasto
