 Becoming a Tomcat super user   [acus2009 455]
by Mark Thomas

Presentation — 60 minutes
Description
Have you ever wanted to to do more than just download Tomcat and install some web applications?
Do you want to learn more about Tomcat internals and how everything fits together? Do you
want to be able to apply patches for bugs to your Tomcat installation without having to wait
for the next release? If you answered yes to any of the above questions then this presentation
is for you. Starting with how the Tomcat subversion repository is structured, this presentation
will show you how to build each of the major Tomcat versions from source, how to use your
local build to generate binary patches for specific bugs and how to extend Tomcat functionality
for your environment. After an overview of the Tomcat request processing architecture, a request
will be examined as it passes through Tomcat using remote debugging. Key classes and decision
points will be highlighted to provide attendees with potential starting points when debugging
their own issues. To finish the presentation, and
  to give a practical example of how the knowledge gained may be put to use, a current bug
will be examined, the root cause identified and a patch to fix it generated.
Presenter Bio
Mark has been using and developing Tomcat for over five years. He first got involved in the
development of Tomcat when he needed better control over the SSL configuration than was available
at the time. After fixing that first bug, he started working his way through the remaining
Tomcat bugs and is still going. Along the way Mark has become a Tomcat committer and PMC member,
volunteered to be the Tomcat 4 release manager, created the Tomcat security pages, become
a member of the ASF and joined the Apache Security Committee. He also helps maintain the ASF's
Bugzilla instances. Mark has a MEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from the University
of Birmingham, UK and is currently a Senior Software Engineer with the Covalent Products Division
of SpringSource.

 Large Scale Tomcat Deployments   [acus2009 516]
by Filip Hanik

Presentation — 60 minutes
Description
Provisioning open source software in large server farms can prove to be a real challenge.
A lot of software products, Apache Tomcat included, don't come with any tools or frameworks
to manage this process. In this session we will dig into the undocumented possibilities that
Apache Tomcat offers that makes Apache Tomcat one of the most flexible and powerful application
servers in the world when it comes to provisioning. Tomcat offers very unique, but unfortunately
undocumented capabilities in this respect. The presentation is focused on managing installations,
configurations, upgrades and even downgrades in a way that little or even no configuration
and migration efforts have to take place. Using this strategy will save your organization
countless hours in managing your Apache Tomcat infrastructure.
