Subject JSPC refactoring/documentation
Date Mon, 11 Nov 2002 05:44:35 GMT
Based on problems reported by users of JSPC Remy made a proposal
to deprecate it.

This resulted in a number of people responding that they used JSPC
and strongly felt it should be kept.

There did seem to be some consensus that JSPC could beneifit from
a review and refactoring to make it easier to use.

It could also benefit from better documentation if it is to remain
part of Tomcat.

Perhaps those who so strongly support JSPC should take the lead to
review, refactor, simplify, and better document JSPC.  Perhaps a
JSPC-HOWTO for the Tomcat docs once the refactoring is completed?

This could be part of a Tomcat 4.2 development effort.
There has been some discussion about other possible new features.

Some new features/changes that have been discussed:

A SecurityManager XML Policy file that allows secure delegation
to web applications for setting their own policies (within a sandbox).

Using JMX to instrument Tomcat for production runtime monitoring.

Possibly a JSPC refactoring.

Audit the SecurityManager web application sandbox.

Are there other changes/features that could be part of Tomcat 4.2 development?

I have a laundry list of smaller issues I would like to address.  Nothing major.
