Subject Beyond Tomcat 4..?
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2001 07:47:29 GMT
Just wondering what's being planned for the future of Tomcat beyond the 4.0
release (if anyone knows...).  For example, are there plans to make a
release that uses JDK 1.4's "scalable I/O" features?  (as both products are
currently in beta, I imagine that could be some way off!)
