Subject Re: [PATCH] Added "app" column to tomcat$sessions
Date Sun, 02 Mar 2003 03:38:49 GMT

Thanks for your patches for JDBCStore.

I have been going through the tomcat-dev list and bugzilla to find
all bugs/patches and am working on updating JDBCStore.

In the future you may want to create a bug report using bugzilla
and attach your patch to the bug report.  Your patches are less
likely to get overlooked if they are in bugzilla.

Thanks again,
