I read about this in the Oreilly's Book - Tomcat The Definitive Guide.

Thanks for the information.

If possible, update to 4.1.27 and JDK 1.4.2.

Where did you read this?

Looking at $CATALINA_HOME/bin/ would tell you this option is
not available.

Reading the servlet spec will tell you that a container is required to
support naming.  So yes, "JNDI" is available and enabled by default.

You can't disable JNDI support per se, but you can make sure no JNDI
resources are defined in server.xml, so that any JNDI lookups return

>(1) Will this set the max memory size of 44 MB ?
>(2) Again, is this feature available with Tomcat 4.0.1

Yes, this indicates to the JVM to allow up to 44MB on the heap.  This
option is available with tomcat 4.0.1, as once again simply looking at
$CATALINA_HOME/bin/ would show.

>c. I read on the net that one can set the -server

>(1) Where does one setup this option? Is it in catalina.bat and how?

It's a JVM option just like the others, e.g. -Xmx above.  It's available
even before JDK 1.4.
