Subject Re: Tomcat 4.1.29 versus Tomcat 5
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2004 20:07:07 GMT
I'm going ahead and trying it out. But I have a different question.

Are all the config files the same between Tomcat4 and Tomcat5?

If they are the same, then it sounds trivial to at least try it out. If
not, then it would be painful to have to upgrade, and move back to
tomcat4, if need be.
