Subject RE: iPlanet + tomcat integration
Date Wed, 29 May 2002 08:27:48 GMT
1. I have to use this version of iPlanet because it's the only one that works with my 
current application servers.
2. The iPlanet version shouldn't matter, because as far as I know tomcat connectors can 
work with iPlanet 4.
3. I can't use iPlanets's internal JSP/Servlet engine since it's very old (I think it supports
JSP tag versions 0.98). I need the newest JSP engine that supports the latest taglist version,
specially the ones related to database.

Is there a reason why you aren't using iPlanet's jsp/servlet engine? 
Besides the obvious fact iPlanet's implementation is out of date.
iPlanet ent 6 is much better than iPlanet 4.  Perhaps try the newer
version of iPlanet? that might be more fruitful than trying to integrate
tomcat with iPlanet 4.
