Subject RE: server.xml dtd
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2002 19:38:12 GMT
Last I had heard there was not a DTD for server.xml.  My guess is that this 
is because new versions of Tomcat have new features that would need to be 
reflected by a new version of the DTD - which would quickly lead to DTD 
sprawl.  And probably no one wants to do it. . .

And the server.xml file is not part of the servlet spec since it is at the 
heart of *how* a vendor implements the spec rather then what spec they 
implement.

Cheers,

Eric Everman
