Hi all,

Sorry for not seeing this post sooner.

I was approached by Sam's publishing company to write a tomcat book. I
have sent them the proposal and they have sent it on to experts in the
field to be evaluated.

This book will hopefully be finished by the end of July. (depending on
approval speed)

It will cover everything from installation to security and basic
JSP-Servlet web development. It will also include information on tag
libraries and installing additional JARs and deploying WAR files. etc.
etc.

So don't worry, one book is on its way!

Regards,
Adam.
