I'm searching for a way to extend Tomcat and let him process some other
protocols instead of HTTP.

I want to use Tomcat for acting as an Open-Source streaming server. 

The stream-controlling protocol(RTSP) makes extensive use of the
HTTP-specifications, so the idea was to just modify the existing
HTTP-Connector to let Tomcat handle the system-level resources like Threads
and stuff and to use Servlets as an application interface. Beside this there
are some other protocols needed to stream the media to the clients based on

While having some deeper look at the org.apache.catalina.connector classes
it seems that they are coupled to HTTP and Coyote.

So the first idea seems a bit dirty, cause it would mean to make some deeper
changes which was not intended ;) 

Can anybody please confirm my observations!


Kind regards,
