   . Tomcat has always been embeddable but with Tomcat 7 it has been much simpler. This presentation
will show you how you can embed Tomcat in your application in just five - may need to edit
this figure :) - lines of code. The remainder of the presentation will demonstrate how this
embedded instance can be configured and will cover standard web.xml configuration, how to
modify settings normally configured in server.xml and integrating with custom components such
as a custom Realm.
+ ==== Securing and managing your Tomcat installations ====
+ By Mladen Turk:
+  . Using Apache Tomcat as production application server requires some basic knowledge of
using multi-tier application servers to host business logic and data access services. This
talk addresses each component and technology separately and shows you how to secure your application
server in each case. It focuses on security measures that needs to be considered when securing
the associated communication channels that connect Web server to the application server and
the application server to the database server. It also gives a glimpse overview on the threats
and countermeasures needed to secure the Tomcat in production environments.
+  . Mladen Turk is a Principal Software Engineer at JBoss, a division of Red Hat (Switzerland),
where he is responsible for Native Integration, Enterprise Web Services and Multiplatform
technologies. He is member of JBoss Application Server team and gives more then 20 years of
experience in client/server technologies. Mladen is currently acting as Apache Tomcat PMC
chair, and beside Tomcat, he actively contributes to APR, Httpd, TrafficServer and Commons
