Subject Re: setting up tomcat and apache to run together

The other problem is that there are very few informative links on either the
Jakarta or the Tomcat sites. Do you realize that there is no link to the
documentation anywhere? (or if it's there, it's impossible to find...) There
are links to the FAQ, to the servlet spec and API, to the sun jsp pages,
etc... but no link to the Tomcat documentation. Also, I just found out a few
days ago that rpms are available for most Tomcat installs. However, if you
don't know where to look for them on the Jakarta site, you'll never find
them because there aren't any links to them.

Isn't that a little odd?

I'll see your 3 cents and raise you a penny...
