Subject Re: Beyond Tomcat 4..?
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2001 22:01:18 GMT
Just had to say that Tomcat is a fine piece of work.

I am looking forward to the mod_webapp Apache-Tomcat connector.

Although it may be before its time or another project entirely...an expanded
web based webapp management interface (additional information, more functions,
etc.) would be very attractive.

Experimenting with the "new I/O" calls is certainly something I'm
interested in exploring (along with performance tuning in general).  But
the reality is that what actually gets added post-4.0 is based on what
features people suggest, combined with what features people actually write
code for.

Are there particular things you're interested in seeing?
